CooperVision opens in Costa Rica

CooperVision has opened a new, 100,000 square-foot, high-volume manufacturing facility at Coyol Industrial Park in Alajuela, Costa Rica. This plant is the company’s second site for clariti® 1-day silicone hydrogel lens manufacturing, joining an existing facility in Budapest, Hungary.
The facility currently employs 250 local residents, with the potential to add up to 300 employees in the next three to five years.
The company has the option to expand the plant, as well. After a global review, CooperVision chose Coyol Industrial Park in part due to state-of-the-art infrastructure, an advanced communications network, a highly-educated workforce, and competitive construction and operating costs.
