Medical devices manufacturer expands operations in Costa Rica

August 3, 2011

Nitinol Devices & Components (NDC), a private U.S. medical device company based in Fremont, Calif. announced it will expand their manufacturing plant. The company established operations in Costa Rica a year ago.

The announcement comes a few days after the company completed its first medical devices shipment produced in the country.

NDC plans to expand their payroll to four times its current size, going from 25 workers to 100, and construct a new plant in Coyol, Alajuela. The total investment will cost about $4 million.

The current plant manufactures medical guidewire, wire grinding, tip shaping, packaging and labeling.

The new facility will make other medical device components for endovascular, orthopedic and coronary markets. NDC also plans to expand its capacity to assemble, package and label finished devices.

The new facility will not be operational until mid-2012, but NDC will begin the recruiting process immediately, looking for a plant general manager and other key engineering and leadership positions. Those interested may send their resumes to inquiries_costa_rica@nitinol.com. Learn more about the company at www.nitinol.com.
