“Intel continually assesses its operations around the world to ensure we have adequate capacity to meet global demand. We will begin assembly and test operations in Costa Rica in order to expand our capacity and continue to meet the needs of our customers,” said Ileana Rojas, General Manager of Intel Costa Rica, in the statement.

Since 1997, Intel’s presence in Costa Rica has supported the growth of the country and catalyzed Foreign Direct Investment. More than 2,000 employees design, prototype, test, and validate integrated circuit and software solutions, and provide finance, human resources, procurement, and sales and marketing support.

Originally the site of an assembly and test manufacturing facility, in the last several years, Intel’s presence in Costa Rica has transformed into a state of the art Research and Development Center and a Global Services Center that provide critical services and solutions for the entire corporation.
