Oberg Medical to expand Costa Rica operations

March 27, 2012

Oberg Medical, a full-service medical-device manufacturer providing implants, instruments and complex assemblies, announced plans for the expansion of its Costa Rica manufacturing operation, meaning $2 million of capital investment in the country.

Company officials said in a press release the move was to better-serve the expanding device market in Central America and provide “cost optimization solutions.”

“We have been a manufacturer in Costa Rica since 2001 and have seen firsthand the growth of the medical device sector in country. As more of our OEM partners look to Central and South America for growth opportunities, we are expanding our presence in the country to provide them cost-effective manufacturing solutions,” said David Bonvenuto, executive vice president and general manager of Oberg Medical.

The company has more than 100 employees in Costa Rica today and local facilities will expand from 24,000 square feet to more than 50,000 square feet within its current home, the Metro Park, located in Heredia province, northeast of San José.

Oberg’s U.S. operations are located in the suburbs of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
