Resonetics to Open State-of-the-Art Laser Micro Manufacturing Facility in Costa Rica

OCTOBER 6th 2016

New production site will offer high volume, cleanroom laser processing along with automated secondary operations

San José, Costa Rica, October 6th, 2016. Resonetics plans to open a new production facility in the Coyol Free Zone Business Park in Alajuela, Costa Rica. Construction started in May and is expected to be completed in October.  The new 16,000 sq. ft. (1,486 sq. m.) plant will feature a 3,000 sq. ft. (279 sq. m.) Class 8 cleanroom, and 24/6 operations. 

To start operations, Resonetics is expecting to hire 35-40 people. The team members will be laser operators, quality and manufacturing engineers and technicians.  The company anticipates that operations will commence in the fourth quarter of 2016.

Alexander Mora, Minister of Foreign Trade received with great enthusiasm the news. “The opening of Resonetics’ first facility in Costa Rica represents a new and very welcoming addition to our prestigious group of companies operating in life sciences sector, that today sums almost 70 companies in the country. With sophisticated products that will be offered and used by other companies in the sector, will no doubt add great value to our productive ecosystem. We congratulate Resonetics for trusting Costa Rica for its operations.” 

Resonetics is pleased to open its first factory outside of the United States,” said Tom Burns, Resonetics CEO. “Costa Rica has become a global center of excellence for  medical device assembly. To be a strategic partner, it’s important to service our customers locally with high value components, as well as establishing a lower cost operation for export to other markets. We are grateful for the support of CINDE and the talented and experienced partners we’ve been working with in-country to establish a world-class operation.”

Jorge Sequeira, Managing Director of CINDE said, “Costa Rica and its reputation as a top destination for medical devices companies is getting stronger day by day. Resonetics is the latest example of how multinational companies trust Costa Rican human talent to boost their business plans and expand their operations to new limits. Today, Costa Rica hosts more than 60 multinational companies in the Life Sciences sector, and thanks to companies such as Resonetics, other companies will trust us to proove our capabilities as a strategic partner for their operations.”

Resonetics’ facility in Coyol Free Zone Business Park will be the company’s fifth location.  In 2015, Resonetics opened production in San Diego, California and acquired Mound Laser in Dayton, Ohio. In September 2016, it announced plans for a new facility near Minneapolis, Minnesota.  With the additional facilities and the acquisition, Resonetics is positioned as the leader in laser micro manufacturing for the life science industries.  The Costa Rican facility will have state-of-the-art laser systems and focus on high volume production of medical devices and diagnostics components.

The company began the hiring process for the plant. Those interested can send their CV to
