SEPTEMBER 12th 2019

•Company develops R&D studies of medical devices in Costa Rica. 

San José, Costa Rica. September 12th, 2019. MicroPort , a multinational orthopedics company, will establish a new services center in Costa Rica in addition to its current R&D operation for orthopedic medical devices. 

The company started operations with 30 people this year and will grow to approximately 70 employees by the end of 2020. MicroPort is located at Oficentro Torre La Sabana part of Improsa SAFI real estate fund.

Currently, the company’s operations are mainly focused on designing instruments for total knee replacements using 3D images for each patient. These designs are sent to the company's facilities in the United States, where they are manufactured using 3D printers and distributed worldwide. With the new service center, the positive impact on the company’s operations from Costa Rica will be increased.

The services center includes Accounting and Finance, Purchasing, Customer Service, Human Resources, IT and Regulatory Affairs, among others. The R&D center will also support the product development and product update departments.

The company is hiring people with technical or professional studies, English proficiency and experience in medical devices are desired. Teamwork is especially important, both locally as well as with the other countries where the company has operations.

"MicroPort Orthopedics’ expansion fills us with pride. It is a sign of confidence in the country’s strengths, such as our human talent. We congratulate MicroPort Orthopedics and for those who would like to work in Accounting, Purchasing, Customer Service, Human Resources, Information Technology, and Regulatory Affairs, we urge you to approach the company”, said the Minister of Foreign Trade, Dyalá Jiménez.

Stephen Smith, General Manager in Costa Rica, mentioned: "MicroPort has been in Costa Rica since 2014. The business climate, access to capable employees, and proven track record of our team in Costa Rica make this the ideal location to invest.  We have found the perfect mix of talent and energy here, so expanding operations locally was an easy choice".

Pilar Madrigal, Head of Investment Promotion and Aftercare of CINDE, commented: "Costa Rica’s human talent proven ability allows companies like MicroPort Orthopedics to expand their operations in different phases of the value chain. Companies like this one help the life sciences sector’s productivity, which has grown 63% from 1999 to 2017. We are sure that this new operation will also have a positive impact on increasing the sector’s productivity.”

From Costa Rica, the company supports its markets in orthopedics, including North America, Europe, Japan, Australia, China and other countries in the Middle East, Asia and Africa.
