Identification card manufacturer Datacard Group has completed its acquisition of digital identity and information firm Entrust.

The deal was finalized on Dec. 31, according to the companies' joint Monday press release. Together Entrust and Datacard Group now employ almost 2,000 workers.

Entrust will continue to operate out of its headquarters in Dallas, Texas and a facility in Ottawa, Canada. Datacard Group is based in Shakopee, Minn.
