Credit-card processor TSYS said Monday it has opened an office in Poland as part of its expansion into eastern Europe.
TSYS, headquartered in Columbus, said the office in Warsaw, Poland, sets up its push into that nation, as well as the Czeck Republic, Slovakia and Hungary.
The company said it has been serving the Polish market since 1992.
"Complemented by our existing footprint with six clients in Poland, this decision is a long-term strategic commitment to the region," said Kelley Knutson, TSYS' group executive of global services.
The payment processor said Poland is a "key growth market" and has potential for growth because of the number of credit cards in circulation.
TSYS' global footprint includes more than 300 clients in 75 countries
