The UK's fastest-growing card manufacturer, allpay Card Services, has announced the completion of a £3m state-of-the-art-facility, enabling it to further cut lead times for its global client book of banks, processors and retailers and double its current production capacity.
Fully approved to manufacture and personalise both MasterCard® and Visa cards – including contact, contactless and dual interface products – the company is one of just four UK-based scheme-approved card manufacturers, amassing a reputation for its bespoke and high-quality service.
Its new 40,000sq ft. building - which houses its next generation card personalisation and fulfilment bureau – takes the group's footprint at its West Midlands site to 120,000sq ft. enabling it to deliver on an even faster, more efficient basis.
The news follows the manufacturer's selection of the DataCard Group, a world leader in secure ID and card personalisation solutions, to provide the Datacard® MX Series Platform for its next-generation card personalisation and delivery solutions.
Both announcements underline the company's ambition to build on its reputation for delivering a bespoke and high quality service no matter how small or large the requirement, while further growing its client book which already features the likes of Virgin Money, the Post Office and Investec.
Marshall Haldane, Director of allpay Card Services, said: "Continual innovation has always been key to our success and has enabled us to deliver a high-quality, flexible and reliable service to clients that they just wouldn't find elsewhere.
"The completion of our new building, and the facilities within it, ensures that we will be able to build on that reputation and deliver a faster, even more bespoke service to clients across the globe.
"By bringing in state-of-the-art technology we are ensuring faster manufacturing times and completely customisable options for our existing and future customers," he said.
