Valid USA, a subsidiary of Valid S.A., officially opened a 225,000 square-foot facility in Bolingbrook to produce payment, pre-paid, and identification cards, from debit and credit cards to gift cards, smart cards and driver’s licenses, for major bank card issuers, retailers, and government organizations.
Valid is committed to the local communities where they operate. By opening their Bolingbrook facility, nearly 250 jobs will be created and the company plans to bring an additional 20 positions to the village by May 1.
