Plastek Cards (UPIC: PTEK), headquartered in Carson, California, has embarked on an expansion plan to better meet the manufacturing needs of its domestic and international customers. The two-phase plan includes a new card manufacturing facility at the supplier’s U.S. headquarters south of Los Angeles, doubling its size.

“The introduction of our California manufacturing operation will offer us greater flexibility while providing our clients with quicker lead times,” says Jeff Fulmer, vice president of production.

The next phase of the company’s expansion will include a third card manufacturing facility to complement its Asia and U.S. operations. Its Southern California manufacturing facility is expected to be fully operational in January 2016.
