POMPANO BEACH, Fla., June 17, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- MicroTechnologies recently was awarded a significant program for contract manufacturing of a complete line of medical devices at its Costa Rica facility. The contract is the first major client for the company's new Life Science division and will serve to greatly advance its presence in this sector.
"This is a major step forward, both for our company and Costa Rica. Our customer (who prefers to remain confidential) has put their faith in the country and us when they elected to close their facility in the United States and transfer their work to us" stated Michael Tucci, President & CEO of MicroTechnologies. "We were able to provide them with a cost effective solution sure, but their decision was also due to the abilities here in Costa Rica. The products to be manufactured by us fit our profile for delivering critical components and we are confident that our team in Costa Rica will deliver on what we have promised."
After a year of due diligence, the company decided that Costa Rica was the place for them to outsource and that MicroTechnologies was the best choice. MicroTechnologes will manage then entire operation and supply chain, with the help and technical advisors from the client present as needed. Tucci further commented "We were able to provide a true win/win solution to their needs. They get to leverage our 15 year local experience producing critical components in large volume and we are able to absorb this new work into our existing infrastructure. The result is a confident and close supply chain with a fraction of the overhead to the client and reduced risk profile for both companies."
The manufacturing cell of clean-room molding and assembly will be housed in the MicroTechnologies new 14,000 sqf medical device facility expansion and represent 60 new jobs to Costa Rica.
