San José, Costa Rica. February 17, 2022 – Triz® Engineering
, a South African-based company, with almost 200 employees globally, providing end-to-end engineering services for commercial vehicle engineering and development for OEM and Tier 1 suppliers in Northern America, has opened operations in Costa Rica. Triz Engineering Services, SRL has opened an office in WeWork
, at C3
, Heredia. In the upcoming months, it plans to hire 20 people, with significant investment planned over the next 2 years.
Triz Engineering Services Costa Rica will play a critical role in the long-term strategy for the family of companies in GVW Group, improving engineering services by enabling Triz Engineering to better support US customers in similar time zones and provide onsite support at short notice. In addition to improved service delivery, the Costa Rican presence will enable Triz Engineering to enter new market regions and explore new opportunities.
“The decision to expand our operations to Costa Rica was two-fold: first, being the opportunity to operate in a similar time zone to our clients; and second, the ability to gain access to the highly skilled pool of talent available in Costa Rica.” Triz Engineering President, Johann Vorster, explained.
The Minister of Foreign Trade, Andrés Valenciano, commented, “We celebrate the arrival of Triz Engineering, a South African company, to Costa Rica. Their presence demonstrates the dynamism and quality of our export offer to the world. In addition, it coincides with our FDI country diversification strategy, which we have developed in partnership with CINDE: In 2021, 41% of new company arrivals came from non-traditional markets, such as South Africa. At Triz Engineering, Costa Ricans will provide U.S.-market solutions focused on sophisticated engineering processes through sustainable and versatile techniques, thus generating high value for our neighbouring market. We appreciate this vote of confidence in our human talent, and we are committed to continue working in a way that creates the ideal conditions for Triz Engineering to grow and develop in our country.”
For his part, Jorge Sequeira, the Managing Director of CINDE
, added: “We welcome Triz Engineering to Costa Rica. It’s an example of our country diversification efforts for FDI in Costa Rica, where last year, we had eight non-traditional countries of origin such as South Africa. The company’s presence will contribute to our knowledge-based service
offering, which as of the third quarter of 2021, represented 73% of all Costa Rican service exports. We predict a great start for Triz Engineering and, above all, great growth in partnership with Costa Rican talent.”
