The company ends the year with only 1,550 of the 2.800 employees it had in April at the La Ribera de Belén, Heredia plant, taking into account the 250 new employees that began working at the Megalab that was opened this week.

Scott added that the layoff process went smooth, all received training and support through job fairs and conventions with other companies.

On April 8, Intel announced the closure of the assembly plant. The company said it was moving the process to Vietnam. The company said the closure would be a gradual one from July to December.
