The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – The German electronics manufacturing company, Zollner Elektronik AG, promises to create 400 new jobs over the next two years, according to the vice president, Ana Helena Chacón.

The company opened its Costa Rica campus today Wednesday with an investment of about $15 million and currently employs about 200 people, including mechanical engineers, electrical engineers and production, who will be joined by 400 new employees in two years.

The Zollner plant is located in the industrial park in La Lima, Cartago, and is dedicated to the manufacturing of printed circuit boards for the industrial, automotive, medical, office electronics and information technology sectors.

Chacón said it is necessary to improve the current curricula in the country to generate skilled labor that attracts investment from foreign companies of this type.

The plant will officially begin operations in June. Costa Rica is the first Latin American country with a headquarters for the German company. (Amelia Rueda)
