Snowfish B.V. will participate in SDS for the first time.
On 4th February 2019 IGT Testing Systems and PNO Global founded ‘SNOWFISH B.V.’. All Snowfish activities are incorporated in this new company. After launching the Snowfish Sorter Process, the Snowfish Quality Control and the Snowfish Counterfeit Analysis, many Central Banks and Printing Works recognized the value the Snowfish instruments can add to their processes and systems. The analyses of Snowfish are objective and consistent and more detailed data can be collected than before.
Snowfish B.V. is independent and not controlled by any supplier of sorter machines or other currency industry related products. Mr. Tom Buitelaar, inventor of the Snowfish and former ECB/DNB employee, is member of the Board. Other Board members are Mr. Wilco de Groot, MD of IGT Testing Systems, and Mr. Bart Goeman Borgesius, Chairman of PNO Global. Mr. Ernesto Gonzalez Candela, former Head of R&D Banco de Mexico, is appointed as Board member per 17th October 2019.
