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.


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."
