SIA-SSB has opened a new office in Poland, located in the Warsaw Financial Centre. The office joins the offices already present in Bucharest, Romania and Budapest, Hungary, where subsidiary Giro Bankkàrtya ZRt (GBC) operating in the sector of payment systems with credit and debit cards, has its headquarters.
SIA-SSB’s strengthened presence in Poland arises from the need to consolidate operations in the local market, where the group has already been working for some time. The new representative office in Warsaw will enable the company to pursue new business opportunities also in neighbouring markets, such as Russia, Ukraine and the Baltic area.
