Phase II Grand Opening
With an investment of over $20 million and a projection of 500 new jobs, Heraeus Medevio officially completed Phase II of its Costa Rica site in the La Lima Free Trade Zone industrial park on Wednesday, May 24.
This expansion doubles the site’s size to over 108,000 square feet (approximately 10,000 m2), adding class seven, eight, and controlled environment (ISO class nine equivalent) clean rooms.
Heraeus Medevio’s Costa Rica site manufactures guidewires, snare kits, and neuromodulation leads for the medical device industry, and added additional capabilities, including catheters, to its production lines this year.
“Heraeus’ expansion in Costa Rica, particularly in the La Lima Free Trade Zone, is due to the high level of talent we have found in the country, in addition to the country being a growth destination,” affirmed the site’s General Manager René Cardona.
