Loomis in brief

Loomis is the specialist in creating an efficient cash flow in society. We offer comprehensive solutions at all levels of society including financial institutions, retailers, other commerce related business and the public sector. Our 23,000 employees operate at about 400 branch offices spread across more than 20 countries.

The specialist at creating an efficient cash flow

Loomis has a great heritage and a long history of managing cash. The history of Loomis goes back 160 years, to the California gold rush. As the specialist at creating an efficient physical flow of cash, we know better than anyone else when, where and how much cash is needed.

Loomis ensures that cash circulates quickly and safely. Around year 2000 it could take up to three days for a banknote to be returned to circulation after having been used in trade. By finding optimal cash flow solutions, Loomis has substantially reduced that time.

Customers and service offering

The customers of Loomis are first and foremost to be found within the banking sector and the retail industry. The demand for efficient cash handling is high among central banks, large commercial banks, large ATM operators, large retail chains but also smaller enterprises. 

We offer a wide range of solutions for cash in transit (CIT), cash management services (CMS), and international valuables logistics. Cash in transit remains our main source of income but a growing part of our profits is generated through cash management services. The demand for comprehensive solutions regarding cash flow differs significantly depending on the market maturity. In general, the cash management market has developed further in Europe than in other continents.

In May 2014, Loomis acquired VIA MAT Holding AG, one of the world’s leading companies in international valuables logistics. The acquisition enables Loomis to expand its service offering. The offering consist of two types of operations; cross border transportation of cash and precious metals and storage of valuables.
