TALL Security Print, part of the TALL Group of Companies, is celebrating another series of new contract wins in Africa, adding two Nigerian Universities to its fast-growing portfolio in the region. Under the terms of the new deals TALL Security Print will print graduation certificates for a number of Nigerian universities including the University of Ibadan and Ahmadu Bello University, taking their total to 17.
A base stock of certificates is produced and stored at its UK premises for overseas customers that can then be ordered directly. This results in a quick turnaround without a backlog. Each document is personalised with student details and a photograph if requested, giving both the university, the student and any employer the assurance that their certificates are genuine, verified and trustworthy. This year alone the company has already received orders for over 150,000 certificates.
Martin Ruda, Group Managing Director of the TALL Group of Companies, said, “Universities and students can have faith in our products and know that they will be accepted with confidence in the wider world by future employers. Secure printing is of great importance to Nigerian universities, which often fall victim to fraudulent printing. As a result many universities are now approaching TALL Security Print because we have established an internationally renowned expertise in this market for over two decades.”
The new contracts come after the Group announced they had become suppliers for the University of Ilorin, the Federal University of Technology, Minna and the Lagos State Polytechnic. Prior to using the TALL Security Print secure certificate service, between 100-150 incidents of document fraud were found each year at the University of Ilorin and this figure has now been reduced to virtually zero.
Elsewhere in Africa, TALL Security Print has now printed certificates for various universities in Somaliland and schools certificates for the Somaliland National Examinations and Certification Board (100K). For KNEC (Kenya National Examinations Council), they produced around 2M certificates of various types as well as certificates for LUANAR (Lilongwe University of Agriculture & Natural Resources), Malawi.
