Plastic Card Services (PCS), a manufacturer of plastic cards, has celebrated 25 years in business this week by announcing the completion of a £1 million investment in its new digital production facility.
Sited on its existing manufacturing campus within Tytherington Business Village, Macclesfield MP David Rutley was invited to officially ‘cut the ribbon’ on the new unit.
The event also combined with a celebratory silver anniversary BBQ for staff at the firm, which now employs 50 people.
Commenting on the importance of ambitious businesses to the local economy Mr Rutley said: “It was an honour to visit PCS to join the company’s 25th anniversary celebrations and learn about all that the team has achieved.
“They are a great example of how a company can grow UK-wide, and, indeed, internationally, securing opportunities for the futures of local people.”
The company’s managing director Adam Unsworth said: “We knew the demand for shorter-run work was there from our existing customers and the investment in a digital facility was a natural next step for the firm.”
He added: “We ensured that each piece was compatible with our existing manufacturing lines, allowing us to double our overall output to 160 million cards per year, acting as a real step change for the business.”
