The first metals IT project was a computer system for the hot rolling mill of Bochumer Verein. This project led to the establishment of PSI in 1969.
With PSI as a partner, you will benefit from 50 years of experience in the creation of IT solutions for the metals industry. The success of our company is due to the experience of different companies and their joined forces within PSI Metals.
