Secura Key hires card manufacturing director
Secura Key has added Ryan Hawkins as Director of Card Manufacturing, overseeing scheduling, production, printing, and encoding of Access Control, RFID, and high volume card products at Secura Key.
Hawkins joins Secura Key with 10 years’ experience in card production, most recently as Owner/Partner at Phoenix Card Services. Before that, he worked in Card Production and Technical Sales for CPI Card Group in Las Vegas, NV. Previously, Hawkins worked in the printing industry, managing printing and production scheduling for magazines and publications. He is currently completing his MBA degree.
Concurrent with the hiring of Ryan Hawkins, Secura Key has acquired a new line of high-volume card production equipment, including a large-format laminator and two high-speed Class A die cutters. The acquisition complements Secura Key’s existing card production capabilities and allows Secura Key to provide quicker manufacturing turnarounds of high-volume custom-printed cards and keytags. This includes the manufacture of HF, UHF, Magstripe, barcode and multiple technologies, for applications such as loyalty, school, hospitality, library, membership and transportation.
Secura Key’s VP of Sales & Marketing, Charlie Anthony stated: “We are truly excited about having Ryan Hawkins on board. His production expertise coupled with the potential of our new card production line immediately enables Secura Key’s customers a greatly expanded turn-key resource for their custom card manufacturing requirements.”
