Paul Cooper Appointed to Lead Sun Chemical Security Division

WEXHAM SPRINGS, UK | Sun Chemical’s Security Division will operate under the brand name of Luminescence and will remain a standalone business, guaranteeing the confidentiality and strict protocols followed in the security inks business. This will be headed by Paul Cooper who has over 30 years of experience in the security market. A key driver in the success of Luminescence, Cooper will now have the vast resources of Sun Chemical to provide a world-class service on a global basis.

Specializing in customized, ink-based solutions for banknotes, tax stamps and secure documents, such as passports and ID cards, the new business offers customers an unsurpassed combination of technology, production and R&D capabilities, global reach and financial stability.

This unique proposition, underpinned by the highest ethical standards, means that, for all security printers and central banks, Luminescence presents a world-class alternative to existing suppliers in the market. Recognizing this, two of the top four global central banks have already demonstrated their confidence in Luminescence and Sun Chemical Security by engaging the division.

The business is headquartered in the UK, with R&D facilities in the UK, France and the USA and with secure, European bank accredited manufacturing sites in UK, France and the Netherlands. Further significant investments are planned to support the rapidly growing business.

“With our broad range of capabilities and our vast experience, we’ve already proved that Sun Chemical can add significant value for customers in other print markets and are confident that Sun Chemical Security, led by Paul Cooper, can do the same by making security printing more productive and cost-effective,” said Felipe Mellado, Chief Marketing Officer and Board Member, Sun Chemical. “We’re 100 percent committed to the security printing market. With the combination of Luminescence’s proven technologies and Sun Chemical’s global reach, resources and R&D capability, we can provide the security printing industry with a highly competitive and innovative partner.”
