Smart and Innovative Solutions for the Security Printing Industry
Smart and Innovative Solutions - since 1964
For over 50 years, our company has manufactured series and
customized equipment for print processing and has been a long
established supplier to governmental and private security printing
companies. RFID encoding, personalization using inkjet, thermo transfer
and laser, as well as print verification using cameras and the application
of holograms for document security. - With our RADUS product line, we
offer our customers innovative coding and personalization solutions for
ISO cards, individual sheets, labels, tickets and continuous forms.
Innovative and future-oriented concepts, in-house development and the
production of highly-efficient and reliable machines explain the high
degree of brand awareness for RADUS around the world.
The history of the company starts in 1964 in Wuppertal with the
foundation of the company by Arnold Herzig. In 1970, during the first
expansion phase, the company moved to nearby Sprockhoevel. At the
same time, the current headquarters of the company was built, including
its production and administration buildings.
Numerous patents and innovations, as well as consistent alignment of
the product range to meet customers' requirements, quickly established
the company as a constant in the graphic area when it comes to
numbering and coding systems.
Deriving from these successes, the name RADUS came from an
abbreviation of "Rationelle Durchschlagnummerierung" (efficient carbon-
copy numbering). Advertising slogans such as "Those who number think
of RADUS" meant that the former product name became a brand name
over the course of the year.
Due to continual expansion, a new administration building was acquired
in 1982 with rooms for customer training and demonstrating machines,
and there was a further expansion in production capacity.
Inspired by the challenge of new, future technologies, the focus of the
product range has concentrated on the area of security printing and
RFID since the 1990s. Protection against the forgery of documents using
holograms and security numbering are part of this, as are the coding and
personalisation of RFID smart cards and tickets, in which field the
company is today a market leader.
Area of work, market & customers
The core area of work of our globally-active company is the
development, production and sale of industrial components and
machines for document security, as well as the encoding and
personalisation of products using RFID transponders.
Our clients in the graphic field primarily include private and state security
printing companies, printers from the widest range of industries, and the
producers of machines for printing banknotes and tickets, and
In addition to our series range, we also develop specific solutions, such
as special products for particular applications, and we integrate our
components and modules into existing production systems. In this, we
also collaborate with renowned machine manufacturers from respective
fields of application. We can thus offer our customers advice, design and
training under one roof.
Demonstrations, advertising and sales
The most important bridges for us for reaching our customers are
regular exhibitions at international trade fairs at home and abroad. But of
course we also use modern electronic media such as the Internet.
However, personal contact with our customers and business partners
continues to take priority. Naturally, we always have our finger on the
pulse, so you'll also find contributions from us in national and
international publications, particularly in the field of security printing.
Direct sales ex works, with our showrooms and demonstration areas,
are important means for accessing new markets and looking after our
regular customers. We are represented around the world by
independent agents. These agents provide on-site advice, sales and
