The German electronics firm Zollner Elektronik AG says it expects to hire up to 200 persons and invest $10 million at its new Cartago facility over the next three years.
The firm will be the first occupant in the new Parque Industrial La Lima free zone.
Headquartered in Zandt, Germany, Zollner Elektronik AG has successfully grown to become one of the largest electronic manufacturing service providers in the world, the firm said. Zollner offers a range of services: from research and development, through production, and all the way to after-sales service, it added.
The new Cartago facility has been established to serve customers throughout the Americas and Canada, as well as support existing production facilities, particularly in the United States, the firm said.
Zollner’s global presence includes 8,700 employees at 17 sites in Germany, Hungary, Romania, China, Tunisia, the United States, Switzerland and now Costa Rica, it added.
The firm’s funder, Manfred Zollner, is expected to be at the 8:30 a.m. inauguration ceremony today.
