Hewlett-Packard Products To Be ‘Made in Costa Rica’
U.S. computer giant Hewlett-Packard (HP) opened a research and development center Tuesday in Heredia, north of San José, a development that is expected to create about 150 jobs.
The new HP Development and ProCurveInvestigationCenter – in the Ultrapark Free Trade Zone in Heredia, north of San José – is the first of its kind in Latin America and only the sixth HP wireless research center in the world.
The center houses a laboratory that will be used to create products, technology strategies, integrated circuits for highspeed Internet, and software for wireless Internet. All products created within the center will be given a seal reading “Made in Costa Rica.”
“I am thankful that HP has chosen Costa Rica to continue its Curve model,” President Oscar Arias said at the inauguration ceremony.
“I am also happy that all of the people of Costa Rica’s public and private sectors have made it possible that businesses like HP could come to Costa Rica and grow here.”
