March, 5, 2013
CPI Card Group, a Littleton, Colo.-based card producer, has expanded capabilities at its Petersfield facility in the U.K. to support demand for secure prepaid card packaging, the company announced yesterday. The new capabilities, which include gift card packaging for distribution within an open- or closed-loop environment, add to the existing products and services, such as card manufacturing, personalization and fulfillment, available to CPI in the U.K.
“The secure prepaid market has seen exponential growth in the last three years driven by strong, organic expansion within existing channels, as well as the growth in new sectors,” said Steve Montross, CPI president and CEO. “The extended secure packaging capabilities in the U.K. will enable us to serve our current customers more efficiently, and bring our unique, innovative capabilities to present and new customers across Europe.”
The company announced last December that it was selected by Portuguese retail firm Sonae to design and manufacture gift cards available at Sonae’s Continente supermarket locations throughout the country.
