Sun Chemical Security renamed, Paul Cooper at the helm

Sun Chemical has said that it will rename its Sun Chemical Security division as Luminescence, taking the identity of a company it bought in February.

Luminescence will operate as a standalone business headed by Paul Cooper (pictured), a 30-year veteran of the security market who was a director of the business ahead of its takeover by Sun Chemical. The UK-headquartered unit manufactures security inks suitable for offset, intaglio, flexo, gravure, screen, numbering and inkjet processes, and security threads.

It also has R&D facilities in the UK, France and the USA and with secure, European bank accredited manufacturing sites in UK, France and the Netherlands, and is planning “significant investments to support the rapidly growing business.”

“I'm delighted to have been entrusted with leading Sun Chemical Security and will ensure that the Luminescence philosophy of giving our customers the highest levels of innovation, security, discretion and confidentiality continues to be fundamental to our business approach,” said Cooper.

“Previously Luminescence may have had a limited ability to scale operations to meet the needs of the largest printers and banks, just as Sun Chemical might not have had the technology to meet the demands of every printer and bank in the market. Together, however, in the new combined organisation, we now have the capabilities to satisfy the requirements of every security printer and central bank.”

Sun Chemical says that two of the top four global central banks “have already demonstrated their confidence in Luminescence and Sun Chemical Security by engaging the division.”
