Packaging giant has passport to success
One of Smurfit Kappa's smallest businesses is making a big name for itself internationally.
Wickow-based DLRS manufactures some of the country's most security sensitive documents including the award-winning Irish Passport and the Department of Social Protection's Public Service Card. Management is now hoping to win international contracts to print passports.
"We are now in a position to grow because what we have is the most modern passport in the world," Gary McGann, group chief executive, said about the plant in Bray.
"We are the back-up supplier to the Dutch passport office and we are looking at opportunities in other parts of the world."
The new Irish passport, which was designed and produced by a consortium led by DLRS, won the Regional ID Document of the Year Award in Milan.
