Hallmark Cards to expand Lawrence facility, electrical and mechanical work to begin

LAWRENCE, Kan. – P1 Group, Inc. has won the electrical and mechanical work for the expansion of the Lawrence Hallmark manufacturing facility. P1 was also selected to relocate large production/manufacturing equipment from Hallmark’s Topeka facility to the Lawrence and Leavenworth facilities.

In October 2012, Hallmark Cards, Inc. announced plans to consolidate its Kansas manufacturing operations. Hallmark will move its greeting card and envelope production from Topeka’s production center to the manufacturing facility in Lawrence.  Specialty items will transfer from the Lawrence production center to the Leavenworth facility. When the consolidation is complete the Lawrence Hallmark plant will be Hallmark’s only U.S. facility making greeting cards and envelopes.
