API Holographics in joint venture with IQ Structures


UK-based API Holographics, part of the API Group, has partnered with Czech Republic-based IQ Structures (IQS), led by Tomas Tethal, to launch a joint venture business, API Optix.

The new business brings together the specialist capabilities and resources of API and IQS to form a joint technology center. The venture will further enhance API’s offering of holographic originations for specialist security applications.

API says it will be able to offer its customers a broader and more innovative range of design possibilities using nano-level overt and covert security features incorporated into sharp clear holographic images.

This project is one of a number of investment strategies currently being undertaken by API. Others include the installation of a new demetallization line, an upgrade of site security accreditation and the development of a new design studio and visitors’ suite.
