PSI Polska has signed a contract for the rollout of the PSIasm system at Investment Trading Consulting Sp. z o.o., a company offering metal processing as well as metal sheet, wire and tube products.

Investment Trading Consulting Sp. z o.o., owner of the ITC Metal brand, offers metal sheet, wire, tube products and flats, as well as metal processing.
