The Imprimerie Nationale Group has announced its results for 2012, showing a turnover up 6% compared to 2011, and a net profit after tax of US$27.21 million (€ 21.2 million).
According to the company, since launching its “CAP 2012” strategy aimed at repositioning the group in secure identity, data management, printing and digital stream solutions, the group has increased its turnover by 18% and its gross operating surplus has more than doubled, from US$14.12 million (€11 million) in 2009, to US$37.22 million (€29 million) in 2012.
In 2012, the Group reached a milestone, having personalized the 10 millionth French biometric passport and by producing over a million electronic European Residence Permits, the second electronic document to incorporate a chip, and the first to use a bank card format. Also in 2012, the group equipped the Orange Group with its line of multiservice official ID cards.
“The Impremierie National Group has successfully transformed itself and acquired a new industrial and commercial dimension,” Didier Trutt, CEO of Imprimerie Nationale Group said. “Our ambitions are supported by our human capital, our strength. The values of meeting requirements, of confidentiality, partnership and innovation are engraved in our DNA. They guide our decisions and actions to become the trusted strategic partner of public services, businesses and governments in guaranteeing security, sustainability and confidentiality.”
The Group says it has further reinforced its digital administration strategy by digitizing France’s public archives at regional government level, supported by the accreditation of the French Archives Administration (Service interministériel des Archives de France/SIAF). It has also launched a cloud printing solution for full digital management of postal despatch and has trebled the hosting capacities of the servers at its datacenter.
