Hong Kong Note Printing Limited
Hong Kong Note Printing Limited (HKNPL) prints all of the banknotes for Hong Kong's three note-issuing banks. The note printing plant at Tai Po was purchased by the Hong Kong Government from De La Rue in April 1996 and changed to its present name to continue operation. It is majority owned by the Government, with minority shareholdings by the three note-issuing banks and China Banknote Printing and Minting Corporation. Normally, the company prints a total of about 320 million banknotes per year.
