WAKEFIELD, Mass.--()--Primax, a premier provider of debit and credit card issuing and merchant acquiring programs, products and services, today announced its plans to acquire the processing business of NEBA, a Massachusetts-based association of banks that provides credit card issuing and merchant acquiring programs, products and support services for its members.
