    The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – CooperVision, one of the three largest manufacturers of contact lenses worldwide, will open its next plant in Alajuela, Costa Rica.

    The American company is building a 10,000 square meter plant, which in a first step would employ just over 200 people. The amount of investment has not been revealed until now.

    An aggressive recruitment campaign occurred last weekend, when they published four ads in the classified section of the newspaper, The Nation.

    Gabriela Llobet, director of the Costa Rican Coalition for Development Initiative, applauded CooperVision on the decision to have chosen the country to open its second plant in Latin America. The first is in Puerto Rico.

    The satisfaction lies in the fact that this is the first company in the ophthalmic sector that is established itself in Costa Rica. So far, Costa Rica has become a magnet for many companies that manufacture medical devices. In total, here are just over 115 firms, employing over 17,000 people.

    Llobet ensured that the country has the necessary manpower to meet the labor demand of these companies, especially those that make up the life sciences sector.

    “The arrival of these businesses and their ambitious plans shows that the country has the labor capabilities,” she said.

    He justified this statement with the fact that last year a technical degree started this year at the University of Costa Rica, focusing on the areas of quality products and logistics.
