United States Playing Cards Building New Facility

Maker of Bicycle playing cards will invest $30 million over the next two years to establish a new manufacturing, distribution and headquarters campus.

CINCINNATI -- The United States Playing Card Company, producer of playing cards including Bee, Bicycle, Aviator and Hoyle, says it will be investing in excess of $30 million over the next two years to establish a new manufacturing, distribution and headquarters campus in the Greater Cincinnati region.

USPC said the new facility will house all current operations and accommodate the company's future growth.

USPC will relocate to a 570,000 square foot facility on 40 acres in Boone County, Kentucky in early 2009. The facility will be the headquarters operations for USPC, which has been located in the Greater Cincinnati city of Norwood, Ohio since 1901.

USPC is part of Jarden Branded Consumables, an operating division of Jarden Corporation.

The campus will also serve as the headquarters for Loew-Cornell, a producer of art and craft supplies and also part of Jarden Branded Consumables, whose corporate functions will be relocated to Boone County from Englewood, NJ.

USPC will continue to have operations in Cincinnati, including a display of the company's museum of historical playing cards dating back to the fourteenth century.
