Now entering our 25th year of trading, Plastic Card Services has a proven track record of continued growth and an enviable reputation as one of the UK’s leading manufacturers of plastic cards and associated services.

Plastic Card Services Ltd

What originally started out with owners Rob Nicholls and Tim Holt working out of Rob’s spare room, has now grown into a £5.9m turnover business that employs 50 staff and operates from our own purpose-built manufacturing campus in Tytherington Business Village.

The company’s 30,000 square foot facility, which has the capacity to manufacture and process 160 million cards per year, comprises of 2 separate production facilities (one lithographic and the other digital), both of which house state-of-the-art card production and finishing equipment, a bureau to facilitate mailing and fulfilment, a secure warehouse offering a pick and pack service for our customers, as well as the company’s offices to handle the administration side of the business.

The decision to house all the facilities in one place was taken early in the company’s development so that the workflow throughout various processes would be seamless, whilst providing easy communication between all departments.
