NCI Building Systems establishes design center in Costa Rica

San José, March 20th, 2018. NCI Building Systems, one of North America’s largest integrated manufacturers of metal products for the nonresidential building industry, announced today it plans to open a design center in Costa Rica to support its North American operations. NCI’s family of industry-leading brands works side-by-side to design, manufacture and deliver a comprehensive range of products for the non-residential construction industry – from metal coating to components to insulated metal panels to complete building systems.

NCI is hiring now and expects to create 20 new positions within the next three months. Positions will include structural and architectural engineers as well as drafters. Those interested in applying for a job position must visit and look for NCI’s virtual stand. NCI’s experienced engineering teams offer consultative services in project management, sustainability, value engineering and BIM modeling services. This enables us to provide customers with flexible and cost-effective products and solutions throughout the project lifecycle.

For the Minister of Foreign Trade, Alexander Mora, the announcement of NCI confirms Costa Rica’s value for the services sector. "Thanks to multiple efforts of the country’s vision and strategy, we have become one of the favorite destinations of companies seeking productivity and competitive conditions in the international services sector. More companies with outstanding international experience, such as NCI, rely on Costa Rica to establish their operations to serve highly demanding markets. NCI, a leading company in its industry, has positioned itself as one of the main players with an extensive product portfolio. Its service center in Costa Rica represents a key piece to support its market in North America. We thank the company for the trust and confidence deposited in Costa Rica as a strategic ally for its operations.”

Vice President and Chief Engineer at NCI, George Dunning, stated: “After thorough evaluation, we are excited to be opening an office in Costa Rica. The human talent is one of the main reasons that we chose to bring operations to this country. We are very excited about the opportunity this affords us in creating an exceptional customer experience.”

Jorge Sequeira, Managing Director of CINDE, commented: "NCI's new design center is integrated into the sub-sector of engineering and design of the Costa Rican services sector. Engineers and drafters from Costa Rica will contribute to the development of large projects in North America. For CINDE, the vitality of the services sector is reflected on the generation of employment. In 2017 alone, this sector accumulated the creation of more than 61,500 job positions. Companies like NCI will undoubtedly bring more value to this strategic Costa Rican sector. "

NCI foresees additional resources being added in the medium term.
