Mühlbauer has been given the go-ahead by the government of Serbia to produce smart card security documents–vehicle registrations, identity cards, and driver’s licenses–that will include biometrics. The company’s Serbian smart card production plant is secured by biometrical access control.
Roding–Mühlbauer, a leading manufacturer of turnkey automation solutions for smart card and smart label production, announces the successful acceptance of an overall solution for the production of security documents with high security electronic smart cards by the Government of Serbia. Serbia will be one of the first countries to produce security documents e.g. identity cards, vehicle registration certificates and driver’s licenses for e-government functionality with biometric features included.
The representative of Ministry of Interior Republic of Serbia deputy minister Mrs. Suzana Šuleji? uses the opportunity of the factory system acceptance test to visit Mühlbauer AG in Roding. As a designated specialist for logistics and security matters she will satisfy herself on site of the Mühlbauer technology know-how.
The complete Smart Card Production Line for the plant in Serbia was built up and already approved by the Ministery of Interior Republic of Serbia in the new Security- and Training Center of Mühlbauer AG in Roding, which is secured by biometrical access control. Government officials were satisfied of the provided technology as well as of the outset proven and established full service of Mühlbauer.
During the last years Mühlbauer was already able to gain experience as a prime contractor for government projects. “We’ve contacted many governments worldwide to offer and realize ID projects”, comments Josef Mühlbauer (CEO). These projects are far in excess of manufacturing and delivery of machines. It is important to implement the relevant know-how transfer and the conceptual design and turnkey supply of overall solutions for the production of high secured pieces of identification.
In the course of aggravated security and entry requirements in many countries, Mühlbauer AG will focus their strategic orientation towards enhanced cooperations with international governments and government near organizations.
