Suttle Expands Operations and Creates 150 New Jobs in Costa Rica


Suttle, dedicated to the manufacture of devices and terminals used in the telecommunications industry, announced that it will continue to grow in the country with a reinvestment of US$1.2 million in its plant located in Saret Free Zone (east of the San Jose airport), which also adds a new design centre of higher added value and sophistication.

The company produces a wide range of traditional telephony products and this new centre is strengthening and transforming its operations to provide connectivity solutions through the latest technology of copper lines and optical fiber. In 2013 the company had a staff of 135 people, a number that today extents to 210 workers.

The Suttle Costa Rica plant was founded in 1989 and has historically manufactured most of the traditional products Suttle markets globally.  As part of the global supply network that supports Suttle’s international expansion, the plant is currently transitioning into production of the new FutureLink™ brand of Suttle products. Of the total plant capacity, 30 percent is dedicated to the new product lines, and 70 percent to Suttle’s traditional products.


To this amount, Suttle will add 50 new jobs in the upcoming months in mechanical engineering and industrial design technicians who will be part of the Costa Rican talent that operates the Design Centre.

“Being selected to expand the only operation in Latin America highlights the capacity of our human resource and Costa Rica’s great potential”, noted the Minister of Foreign Trade, Anabel González.

For Bruce Blackwood, President of Suttle Apparatus, the decision to invest in Costa Rica is clear: “With the long history of a successful operation in Costa Rica in the manufacture of products for the U.S. telecommunications industry, and a growing confidence in the country’s ability to provide high-quality human resources, we are expanding the business functions that take place in Costa Rica to include Business Development, Sales, Product Management, and Design and Engineering functions. Additionally, we will invest in the development of manufacturing capabilities to provide fiber optic solutions and advanced copper for the global communications broadband market.”

The reinvestment in Costa Rica will include investment in equipment, computer software, templates, and the expansion of the production plant.

Suttle was established in 1910 in Illinois, USA, and currently the operation of Costa Rica is the only one in Latin America.
