The multinational, which currently employees 1,700 people in Costa Rica, pioneered the development of catheter-based, minimally invasive, neuroendovascular technologies that provide therapeutic advantages for neurovascular disorders.

“Today our strategic vision drives us to close 2022 with nearly 35,000 square meters in manufacturing areas and 3,000 employees,” said Charlie Noel, Vice President of International Operations at MicroVention.

During a visit to the facilities, Costa Rica President, Carlos Alvarado, commented on the importance of this announcement.

“It represents a great impact on the generation of quality employment in the country,” said the president and highlighted the work of the National Learning Institute (INA) in training people for these jobs.
