Karachi: In 2010, SICPA Pakistan embarked upon an ambitious programme of upgrading its security inks manufacturing facility. The project involved the replacement of obsolete equipment with new state-of-the-art equipment, renovation and construction of new offices and installation of world class access control and security arrangements.
