As early as 1958—when American Express first developed what can be considered close to the credit cards we use today—charge card systems have been utilized in different ways across the U.S. Throughout the 60’s, 70’s, and 80’s, credit cards, debit cards, ATM cards, and other charge cards began to take their place in mainstream spending systems. By the 1990’s, payment cards with magnetic strips were almost commonplace, and today, those without credit cards or debit cards are considered social anomalies. As the cards have evolved, custom manufacturing has had to follow suit.
Despite their familiar role in our lives, payment cards require a strict system of production and secure processing to maintain their viability as a product. MultiSource Manufacturing, LLC provides custom manufacturing for parts used in financial processing.
MultiSource has provided precision manufacturing for parts and components utilized in financial processing for virtually as long as the industry has been used for mainstream consumers. For over 40 years our network of technicians and facilities has worked to improve operations in designing, building, and assembling high-quality precision-based parts, including parts for financial processing of payment cards.
We work with a wide range of clients in financial processing from identification card manufacturing specialists to card stamping and credit card manufacturing companies. More than 75% of payment cards across the globe are manufactured in part by MultiSource engineers and technicians.
Custom Manufacturing for Industry Standards
In 2006, major payment card companies established the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council (PCI). This council generates and dictates the development of the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). With the PCI DSS the PCI Council outlines for all payment card brands in place today, manufacturing companies must be committed to designing and creating parts that adhere to these standards as well. The MultiSource network is capable of providing the manufacturing expertise and facilities needed to uphold security and quality in the financial processing industry. With precise CAD/CAM design and a wide range of CNC precision machining equipment, we’re able to provide unparalleled, comprehensive services for components used in financial processing.
If the parts and components used in financial processing systems don’t meet the quality and security standards set by the PCI Council and other federal government regulations, payment cards could become a serious risk for consumers. Protecting the identities and finances of those who use any form of payment card starts with quality financial processing equipment.
MultiSource Manufacturing, LLC strives to continue providing the high-quality machined parts for the financial processing industry needed to fulfill our obligation to protecting consumers.
