Comments: SICPA Securink Corporation, Springfield, VA, is SICPA S.A.’s North American subsidiary. SICPA is the leading security ink producer in the world, with its inks being utilized for currency and security documents as well as packaging. SICPA S.A. had estimated worldwide sales of $400 million during 2019.
While SICPA is best known for its high-tech inks for currency, passports, tax stamps and more, the company has brought its expertise into brand security as well.
During the past year, SICPA announced a few new partnerships. First, the company, in conjunction with the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV), launched the new Virginia Excise Tax System (VAETS) for fuel. This system will help collect approximately $1 billion in state revenue each year for the Commonwealth Transportation Fund.
In addition, SICPA was awarded a new contract to continue to provide its SICPATRACE excise tax solution to protect cigarette excise tax collections in Massachusetts’ Department of Revenue (DOR). The solution includes tax stamp production and data management, and allows Massachusetts to track cigarette sales and collect close to $600 million in excise tax revenue and more than $240 million in Master Settlement Agreement payments annually.
