    The 6,000 square meter complex is located in the Coyol zone of Alajuela, and is the first location they have opened outside the U.S.

    For this operation, the company plans to hire 250 people this year, a figure that could reach 400 jobs in 2011.

    Among the factors evaluated by Moog when choosing Costa Rica over countries like Dominican Republic and Mexico were the quality of the workforce, consolidation of similar companies and industry leaders and geographical proximity to the United States.

    “We are very pleased to start our operations in Costa Rica and have found very talented professionals in fields that are key to an industry like ours,” said Robert Brady, Moog’s chairman, in a statement sent by the Costa Rican Coalition Initiatives Development (CINDA).
