ABnote North America Relocates Secure Card Capabilities
Boston-based ABnote North America will be relocating its secure plastic card production, which includes government identification and financial payment cards, from Mt. Pleasant, Tenn. consolidating it into its existing commercial card facility in Boston. Equipment and personnel will be transferred in phases to maintain the required production capacity and to help ensure a smooth transition.
Keith Goldstein, president and chief operating officer, said, "Consolidating the secure production capabilities into Boston will create efficiencies from having both secure and commercial card operations under one roof. More importantly, the increased flexibility, capacity and ability to better leverage key expertise will result in improved service and a better overall customer experience.”
The secure operation in Boston will be certified by Visa, MasterCard and the United States Department of State for card production. It will be physically separated from the commercial card operation and have highly restricted access along with other security features. The integration is expected to be complete by early spring 2010 and will result in the decommissioning of the Mt. Pleasant, Tenn. facility.
