Fiserv Inc. said two of its units - National Embossing Co. and DataPro Card Services - have merged to become NEC Card Services.
NEC Card Services will continue as a business unit within the Fiserv industry products and services group. Jorge Diaz will lead the combined organization.
In 1995, the two Fiserv units serviced 55 million cards on behalf of issuers. This will make NEC Card Services the second-largest in that business in the country, Fiserv said.
NEC Card Services provides card fulfillment services including personalization, personal identification number generation, and mailing for more than 3,000 clients.
In 1992, Fiserv bought DataPro Card Services; two years later it acquired National Embossing. Services will continue to be provided from facilities in Houston, Indianapolis, and Tampa.
