Fournier to celebrate 20th anniversary of the creation of the first 100 % PVC Plastic cards

(UK).- This year’s a special one for Fournier, marking 20 years since the company developed the first 100 % PVC plastic cards. It may not be known that the reason that led Fournier to create this product was to provide a heavy duty card compatible with the first shuffling machines, much less delicate with the cards than the ones we know today.

T

he progressive introduction of shuffling machines in casinos has brought increased consumption of plastic cards, which offer more security and a cost effective solution to operators.


Fournier is to celebrate this 20th anniversary at the ICE London exhibition. From 4th  to 6th February , at its booth S3 -144 , Fournier will display the latest generation of 100 % plastic playing cards , the playing cards that have become the standard for over a thousand casinos worldwide and the most recognized poker tournaments like the World Series of Poker (WSOP) and the World Poker Tour ( WPT) .


Javier Berasategui, Sales Director of the firm, is convinced that pioneering 100% PVC Plastic cards has helped to position the firm as a category leader, since the experience gained in creating such a sophisticated product counts for a lot. In any case Javier says that "viewed with some hindsight the most difficult thing was to dare to launch a new product category when no one knew how high the market of shufflers would climb."
