In the year 2000 there were only 8 such companies, the number has now reached 41, making this one of the most dynamic sectors in the country.
The recent announcement by the company MicroVention of the installation of a plant with an investment of $8 million comes shortly after those made in the first six months of the year by the companies Helix Medical and GW Plastics.
To lower the costs of their supplies, businesses in the Free Port zones of Costa Rica are expanding the productive chain to include local suppliers.
Nor the uncertainty of the status of the Free Port Zone Law, which is stuck in Congress, nor the impact of the global crisis that has caused exports at Costa Rican free port zones to fall 16% in the first quarter of 2009 have reduced the determination of these businesses. Furthermore, they have found a very good way to decrease costs by including local businesses in the chain of production.
This is actually a big project for Costa Rica, for this sterilization plant would be the first of its kind in the Central America area; and the best news is that it would actually be fully operational this year.
Generates business opportunities by linking supply and demand of goods and services between Central America and the rest of the world.
