Procter & Gamble to invest $5 million in new Costa Rica facility

February 4, 2013

American manufacturer Procter & Gamble (P&G) announced Monday that it will open in Costa Rica a new supply-chain planning center for its entire operation in Latin America.

The new facilities mean an investment of $5-6 million and the creation of 500 new jobs for engineers, business administrators and logistics and customs specialists.

The center will consolidate supply-chain planning of 25 company operations on the continent.

P&G has operated in the country since 1999 and chose Costa Rica again after evaluating several other countries.

The announcement was made by Foreign Trade Minister Anabel González, P&G Associate Director of Communications Alejandra Cob and P&G General Manager of Costa Rica Tara Polanco.
