Bohemia based Global Payment Technologies Inc., a maker of the currency acceptors that reject counterfeit cash from ATMs and vending machines, has found a new major investor — the owner of an Australian metallurgy company.
David Dickinson, owner of Dickinson's Metallurgical Supplies Pty. Ltd, will also become a member of the Global Payment board.
"We are delighted with David Dickinson's involvement," Andre Soussa, chief executive of Global, said in a prepared statement.
"The funding provides GPT with working capital to expand its operations. David brings a fresh business perspective to the board which further solidifies the board of directors."
The company did not say how much Dickinson invested, but characterized the amount as "major."
Global's machines are designed to reject counterfeit bills in more than 50 currencies worldwide. They are used in casino gambling, ticket and vending machines. One of their compact models appears above left.
