Universal Smart Cards In Rawtenstall

In August 2001, Chris Allen and Michael Smith formed Universal Smart Cards. They had previously worked together at G4S and Gemalto, the largest smart card manufacturer in the world. Universal Smart Cards’ regional base is in Rawtenstall but it’s a business that many people in The Valley may not have heard of.

Chris and Michael believe they had the ideal mix between them to form a company specialising in all different types of smart cards and associated products. And so they did!

Over the last 20 years, Universal Smart Cards has grown from a small office in Chris’ home, to now operating from 5 locations around the globe including the UK, USA and China.

One of Universal Smart Cards’ unique approaches is having a quality control team based in China (through their sister company, Cardzgroup). This means they inspect all goods manufactured for their customers before they leave China.

They also have a specialist Technical Centre in the UK where they manufacture and develop software for coding the full range of chips, including using DESfire and Java.

Their technical team have decades of experience in the smart card field and works with specialist equipment which means they can offer product personalisation above and beyond the norm.

The company can boast of shipping over 150 million smart products globally and its operation in Rawtenstall is central to the organisation’s global empire!

Universal Smart Cards can be found at Kingfisher Business Centre on Burnley Road in Rawtenstall. To find out more please visit Universal Smart Cards UK or Universal Smart Cards USA.
