Technology giant Toshiba is joining forces with Costa Rica to open a local headquarters in
San José. This is the sixth office that the Japanese corporation has started in Latin America.
Toshiba’s Costa Rican division will concentrate on commercialization of laptops, tablets, ultra-books, convertible equipment, and memory storage disks. It will also focus on exporting these products, mainly to Miami, Florida. The 233-square meter office is in Oficentro El Cedral in Escazú.
This marks yet another business that has been attracted to doing business in Costa Rica since President Luis Guillermo Solís took office. He said he thanks Toshiba on behalf of Costa Rica for putting its trust into the nation’s workforce and resources.
The minister of Ciencia, Tecnología, y Telecomunicaciones, Gisela Kopper, said the government supports the philosophic ideas of how Toshiba products promote themselves to help make people’s lives easier.
“Initiatives like the ones we celebrate today are crucial to conceptually open a world of possibilities where responsible automation can free a person from daily tasks and allow them to concentrate on more central problems,” she said.
Other regional Toshiba headquarters are located in Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Mexico, and Peru.
