In Costa Rica the industrial zone in El Coyol, because of its location, has become a development hub which is constrained by lack of infrastructure.
"The opening of the intersection between the highways, the expansion and improvement of the stretch of road going from El Coyol to the Airport, as well as support form the ICE to improve power distribution infrastructure in the area have all contributed to an acceleration of growth, and as a response to this important developments such as the Coyol Free Zone, Grupo Monge, Laica, Gollo, Walmart, Durman Esquivel and a significant number of other companies have moved to the area," explained Carlos Wong in his article in Elfinancierocr.com .
In Costa Rica the industrial zone of Coyol has become the new center of attraction for investments, even though it lacks adequate road and water infrastructure.
A good example of the growth in the area is by Grupo Condal, which plans to invest $14 million in this region with the construction of a logistics park measuring 15,000 square meters. In addition, the multinational Walmart last May opened its largest distribution center in Central America (57,776 m²) with an investment of $70 million.
The multinational company Covidien has opened a $50 million plant, which will produce supplies for the treatment of cardiovascular diseases.
With an investment of approximately $50 million, the medical products manufacturer Covidien has inaugurated its new medical manufacturing facility in Alajuela on Thursday, which occupies 18,000 m2 in the Coyol Free Zone and will create 350 new jobs.
El Coyol business park has received $100 million in investment in its first two years.
Two U.S. companies from the medical devices segment, St. Jude Medical and Moog, are building their production facilities in El Coyol Free Port in Costa Rica. These companies join other four factories already operating in the park. Since its inauguration in April 2007, 60.000 square meters have been occupied from 400.000 available, and 600 jobs have been created, while 2.000 positions would be added for 2010.
