The manufacturer of cookers and refrigerators is transferring to Columbia the refrigerator production line it has thus far operated in Costa Rica, where it will maintain a corporate center for the region.
Mabe explained that the reason is due to a change in the technical rules in some Central American and Caribbean countries where they distribute their products. In order to comply with this regulation, it became "... necessary to make modifications to the production line and product design," said Pablo Moreno, director of Corporate Affairs to Elfinancierocr.com.
The company Mabeca has filed an appeal citing unconstitutionality with the Sala IV (Constitutional Court) of Costa Rica, claiming disproportionality in the fine of $2.3 million that has been applied to them.
In August 2011, the Commission to Promote Competition under the Costa Rican Ministry of Economy, found that after the acquisition of Atlas Eléctrica by Mexican company Mabe in 2008, there was a "prohibited concentration" according to the law for promoting competition and consumer protection, and imposed a fine of $2.3 million.
Following the purchase of the Costa Rican company Atlas, the Mexican group Mabe has near total monopoly of the household appliances sector.
