The company is contracted by the Central Bank of Kenya to print genuine notes and coins when need arises. It has special machine, which are certified. These machines print only notes and coins in such a way that no one can replicate a genuine note.

The company has no freedom of printing more than the specified notes. Normally; Central Bank identifies the number of notes to be printed. Then they generate unique serial numbers. The serial numbers are then forwarded to De La Rue. Once the company gets order for printing notes, they start working based on the number requested.
