From its Costa Rica corporate offices, Aspen Pharma will be serving 17 countries in Latin America, said Ana Claudia Álvarez, general manager of Aspen Labs Centroamérica.

The company
had entered the Costa Rica market with the purchase of a division of GSK, but now it counts with its own operations.
The company is located in Guachipelín de Escazú corporate centre.

Franco Muñoz, CFO  of Aspen Caricam, explained that the choice of Costa Rica is due to its political stability, education of executive directors, the country’s record in terms of attracting investment and long-term vision.

Aspen’s presence in Latin America. Aspen supplies a range of quality affordable products through its affiliate companies in Argentina, Brazil, Mexico and Venezuela as well as across the rest of Latin America in countries such as Chile, Columbia, Ecuador and the Carricam territories.

Aspen’s product offering covers numerous therapeutic categories such as the central nervous system, cardiovascular, urinary and endocrine. The leading brands in Latin America include Calman, Eutropin, Insunorm, Suplan, Sedopan, Rosucrest, Sildenafil, Licovit, Cidorix and Triavit.
