Evolis has been selected by the Social Security department of the Chinese province Shandong for the personalization and instant issuance of multifunctional plastic cards. The cards are co-branded by the Shandong social security authorities and six Chinese banks and combine a debit card with a social security card.
Over 400 Avansia printers from Evolis integrating retransfer printing technology have been equipped with a specific smart card encoder by a Chinese system integrator before deployment in the banks end of December 2016. The contract, worth 1.2M $, includes consumables and spare parts. “We are proud that our company has been selected to be part of innovative high tech projects in China where multifunctional smart cards are becoming a real trend,” explains Emmanuel Picot, CEO of Evolis.
