Gemalto, a provider for digital security, expanded facility in Burlington, Ontario, to serve its growing customer base for card standard interoperation in Canada. The investment will double the capacity and accommodate the need for delivering additional cardholder services. The site is the first in Canada to personalize dual-interface smart banking cards that enable both contactless and contact payment.
Gemalto's Burlington facility provides the standard payment cards as well as complete data preparation, card personalization and fulfillment services for numerous financial institutions throughout Canada. Drawing on its global standard migration and consulting experience, Gemalto provides consulting for a smooth transition to microprocessor cards.
“Moving an entire nation to the technology requires strong companies that can respond to and grow with the industry's needs,” said Catherine Johnston, President and CEO, ACT Canada. “Gemalto's Canadian expansion is a clear indicator that they are aligned with market demands and their customers.”
“For over five years, Gemalto has been focused on accompanying our Canadian customers in their standard migration to ensure the success of their project,” said Jack Jania, VP and GM of Secure Transactions, Gemalto North America.
