About CI Tech Components AG

Switzerland-based CI Tech Components AG is a specialist in the validation and handling of banknotes, with various installations worldwide and templates with more than 70 available currencies. 

We have an excellent international network to provide first-class products and services, including currency support and technical customer support for integration and certification purposes.

The origins of CI Tech Components AG go back to BEB Industrie-Elektronik AG, which was founded in Burgdorf, Switzerland, in 1981. BEB started out by developing industrial electronics for various sensor tasks and then began engaging in banknote recognition in 1995.

In 2005, Wincor Nixdorf took over BEB and continued the development and production of banknote recognition sensors.

CI Tech Components AG was founded in 2011 as a joint venture between Giesecke & Devrient GmbH and Wincor Nixdorf AG.
The companies joined forces together and, through CI Tech Components AG, focused their expertise on OEM banknote validation sensors and banknote handling modules.

Since the beginning of 2016, Giesecke & Devrient GmbH has been holding the majority of CI Tech Components AG, which is now a member of the G&D group. 

All products and services are available to all market players without limitations or restrictions.
