The TALL Group of Companies is very proud to be successfully exporting their services to over 30 countries, with products ranging from university degree certificates to cheques to election ballot papers. As a recipient of the Queen’s Award for International Trade and a proud founding member of the Cheshire Commonwealth Association, the TALL Group’s specialist print arm is on course to further strengthen its operations in Africa in 2023.

As major suppliers of international security printing, the longstanding reputation of the TALL Group, for highly secure and top-quality print products and services, has encouraged organisations around the world to rely on a committed work force in the UK to provide a wide range of secure documents.

TALL Security Print, part of the TALL Group of Companies, provide highly valued products and services to emerging markets, primarily in Africa, including cheque scanners to Ghana, secure certificates to 30,000 schools and educational institutions in Kenya, and uniquely personalised degrees to 20 different universities and polytechnics in Nigeria.  The UK’s reputation for reliability, confidentiality and world leading quality counts for a great deal, particularly in Commonwealth countries, where the TALL Group is proud to be at the leading edge of export trade development. This connection with the Commonwealth is clearly demonstrated in an order for Saving Pass Books for Papua New Guinea to support the local authorities move to promote services to the ‘unbanked’ portion of the population.

As DIT Export Champions for the Northern Powerhouse and East Midlands Region in Runcorn and Hinckley respectively, the TALL Group leads by example backing the Government’s ambitious new ‘Made in the UK, Sold to the World’ plan to help businesses, such as the TALL Group, increase exports and sell their world-class products around the globe.


One of the drivers behind the new growth in Africa is the much-envied fraud prevention features across the TALL Group printed product range. TALL are working closely with organisations in Ethiopia and Somaliland to provide secure cheque and voucher solutions to these challenging markets.

Martin Ruda, Managing Director of the TALL Group, said: “We are extremely proud of our work overseas and have won a number of awards and commendations for our export service.  We have well established local representatives in many international markets, and regularly host inward visits to view our design and production facilities.”

“We successfully export a wide range of highly secure documents, ranging from cheques to vouchers and from certificates to electoral ballot papers all around the world from Australia to Ascension Island, Swaziland to Sudan and Ireland to Iraq.”
