Just in…U.S. Playing Card announces move to Boone Co., Ky.

Thanks to a reader’s tip, we have this link to a lengthy article in The Earth Times announcing U.S. Playing Card’s move from Norwood in early 2009 to a 570,000 square foot facility the company will be building on a 40-acre site in Boone County. The new $30 million facility will “establish a new manufacturing, distribution and headquarters campus in the Greater Cincinnati region which will house all current operations and accommodate the company's future growth.” USPC President Phil Dolci told The Earth Times, “With the project involving approximately 500 employees, USPC will be one of the ten largest manufacturers in the Northern Kentucky region, and we look forward to getting to know our new neighbors as we continue to invest in this vibrant region that we are honored to call home." U.S. Playing Card, a part of Jarden Branded Consumables, an operating division of Jarden Corporation, started its Norwood operation at 4590 Beech Street in 1901.
