Boston, Massachusetts, February 18, 2009 – Arthur Blank & Co. is introducing the AB Recycled FinancialCard™ into its GreenLine™ suite of environmentally oriented products.
The AB Recycled FinancialCard™ is made from a 100% pre-consumer recycled plastic core (88% recycled with an overlaminate) and is specifically designed for financial institutions for use in credit and debit card applications. The material is specially formulated to have a bright white finish – even whiter than the AB RecycledCard™ Arthur Blank currently offers for commercial customers. The material also meets or exceeds all ISO and ANSI specifications for CR80 payment cards.
All AB Recycled FinancialCards™ for financial institutions will be processed at Arthur Blank’s secure Mt. Pleasant, Tennessee facility. The 50,000 square foot facility is focused on producing highly secure card products for financial institutions, U.S. and foreign governments, and is a certified secure facility for VISA, Mastercard and Discover.
Jake Jacobs, Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing says "The AB Financial RecycledCard™ provides financial institutions with an ISO/ANSI certified payment card with the highest known percentage of recycled content in the industry today. Now the payment industry has an excellent option to better serve their environmentally conscious customers."
Arthur Blank's introduction of the AB Recycled FinancialCard™ is the latest addition to Arthur Blank's GreenLine™ suite of environmentally friendly stock choices that also includes the CornCard USA®, AB RecycledCard™, AB BiodegradableCard™, and the AB HybridCard™.
