With the addition of 150 Atkison employees, Purdy employees 500 outside of Costa Rica.

The company says it plans to continue expanding its operations primarily in North America, this even after having opportunities to enter South America

“Our focus is the north … We are acquiring deep knowledge in these markets about new tools: the relationship with the customer, technologies, processes, among other things. We are also implementing some outside ‘behaviors’ that generated good results in the country such as the structure and development of aftermarket areas,” Jesus Castro, CEO of Grupo Purdy Motor, told that

Purdy is the exclusive franchisee of Toyota, Daihatsu, Hino (trucks) and Lexus brands.

Last year the company reported a 5% increase in new vehicle sales and is currently expanding its Cuidad Toyota (Toyotaland) centre in La Uruca, including the building of a new tower for administration and sales showrooms.

The company also is expecting in 2018 to introduce to Costa Rica the first hydrogen powered vehicle.
