Stillwater, OK (PressExposure) July 09, 2009 -- /1888PressRelease/ Now known for plastic cards. CLS was Founded in 1999, known at that time as "Computerized Lock Services", the firm has continued to grow each year in double digit sales volume and increased product lines. "Previously, we owned and operated a business that specialized in retrofits of hotel/motel door locking systems from mechanical locks to the modern electronic door lock systems.
During this time, we had many property owners to tell us that they were looking for an independent supplier to provide their property with a competitive priced hotel key cards used with their new electronic door lock system," said Glenn Kinney, now president and general manager of CLS PlasticardsÂ®. Kinney continued by stating, "He began to foresee a new 'niche-market using plastic cards associated with this security system technology.
We now produce millions of plastic cards and hotel key cards. The hotel key cards are being co-branded with the hotels and national companies that range from the food industry to pharmaceuticals. This enables companies to get their targeted message directly into the hands of travelers across the country and at the same time covers the expense of the hotel key cards for the hotels."
Proof of that vision is now seen in the current dramatic demand for plastic cards not only by the hospitality related business but to the general community. Kinney states, "In recent years our plastic card business has grown from a one or two product business that primarily met the need for hotel and motel to a multi-faceted business that has to keep up with a broader spectrum of business that now uses plastic cards. We began to expand into gift cards, membership cards, business cards, VIP cards, key tags, card tag combos and a variety of other plastic card products.
Additionally our printing processes began to change from the initial screen printing, to lithographic printed cards combined with overprints using thermal transfer technology, and recently we have continued to develop a digital process by adding a durable laminated card made of teslin to our product line."
In recent years the demands of the business made sense to add a teslin card facility located in Bixby, Oklahoma. "That decision has expanded our ability to provide service to an unlimited number of new customers," added Bryan Kinney, company vice president and general manager of the Bixby facility. "The addition of the teslin card facility increased our ability to provide better lead times for the 4-color product with print ranges from short to large size runs. We can now offer lead times as short as 1 business day depending on the size of the run."
"A product line can be easily seen on our website or ordered by phone by using the CLS toll free number 1-888-209-7008. By phone or the internet CLS Plasticard ordering is an easy process to have your cards shipped right away," Kinney concluded.
