The Bosch service centre is in the Zona Franca América (America Free Zone), located in Heredia.

The Minister of Foreign Trade, Alexander Mora, said “the opening of Bosch’s new Service Centre is certainly excellent news, with positive implications for the generation of quality jobs for our people. We welcome the decision of the company and appreciate Bosch’s confidence in the country. Bosch is confirming, once again, we are a very attractive place for business process outsourcing and not in vain we remain outstanding as the first destination in Latin America and the eleventh in the world in this field; it is a very strong track record. We applaud your effort and wish you success in your management”.

Jorge Sequeira, the Manager Director of CINDE – the Costa Rican investment promotion agency – said, “Bosch joins the list of more than 120 companies that exist in the area of corporate services, today being the fourth German company in this sector in Costa Rica”.

According to the CINDE, Zona Francas (Free Zone) exports related to information technology in 2014 accounted for US$2.25 billion dollars, representing 65% of total exports of services, demonstrating the dynamism of the industry. In addition, 50% of the jobs created in free zones in the same year also came from this sector.

“For Costa Rica and its human talent it is of vital importance that renowned companies like Bosch trust our country to grow their global operations,” added Sequiera.

To commemorate this important milestone of the service centre opening and following company social responsibility, the Bosch Community Fund has made a contribution of US$10,000 to the Costa Rican Fundación Omar Dengo.
