Costa Rica (CR) has fully lived up to our expectations. Coloplast’s presence reaffirms the strength of the life science eco system in Costa Rica, which continues to strengthen its position as the natural choice for med-tech companies. The highly skilled workforce in Costa Rica is second to none. I continue to be impressed with skill level and committment of our CR employees. Costa Rica’s sustainability initiatives are in line with Coloplast’s in that ~95% of their energy comes from renewable resources which fully align with our strategic initiatives. Establishing operations in Costa Rica has proven to be a good decision for Coloplast and will continue to be for years to come.
