AS METAL HISTORY

More than 25 years ago Constantin and Gheorghe Apostol founded the company AS METAL COM SRL under the name of JETTOURS SERVICII SRL. This company has carried out consulting activities in the field of metallurgical industry and trade in metallurgical products, especially non-ferrous.
