Playing Card Maker Moving to Kentucky

United States Playing Card Company (USPC), a producer of playing cards for consumers and the gaming industry, will invest $30 million over the next two years to establish a new manufacturing, distribution, and headquarters campus in Boone County, Kentucky. The company did not disclose the exact location of the planned 570,000-square-foot facility, which is scheduled to open in early 2009. The company's current headquarters operations are in Norwood, Ohio. Both the new and current locations are in the greater Cincinnati area. The company will share the 40-acre campus with Loew-Cornell, a supplier of art materials to the trade, which will relocate from New Jersey. Both companies are divisions of Jarden Corporation. "The Northern Kentucky location uniquely offers an easily accessible campus for our employees, who live throughout the region, and an existing facility to position us to immediately expand and improve operations and with capacity for future expansion," says Phil Dolci, president of USPC, who also says the company has been offered a "strong, comprehensive incentives package." Details of the package have not been released.
