The ITW Security Division was formed in 2012 by consolidating the management teams, technologies and resources of ITW’s well-established security laminate and personalization businesses - Covid, Fasver and Imagedata. Leveraging the strengths of these brands, the ITW Security Division today offers the secure document market a single source supply for high security laminates and dye diffusion (D2T2) ribbons. These solutions are customized to the specific requirements of each document program to accommodate virtually any combination of personalization method (centralized and/ or desktop issuance) and substrate for passport and ID cards. Global in nature, we supply products to more than half the world’s countries from our facilities in Essex, UK; Montpellier, France; and New Jersey, USA.
ITW Security is part of the ITW Specialty Films division and Illinois Tool Works Inc. (NYSE: ITW), a Fortune 200 global multi-industrial manufacturing leader with revenues totaling $14.3 billion in 2017.
At the ITW Security Division, we understand that the foundation for secure materials starts with highly secure
manufacturing sites where materials are tightly controlled. We manufacture products from start to finish in one
of our secure facilities, enabling us to satisfy the "under one roof" production requirement stipulated by many
government tenders. To further our commitment to manufacturing facility security, our operations are
independently audited yearly against the industry's most stringent physical security standards and regularly
audited by our government customers.
