Clamcleats has been supplying customers in Costa Rica with a growing number of components over the last five years, according to a press release, and this expansion comes after signing a contract to supply plastic injection molded components to a long-term customer in the country.

Besides injection molding, the company offers complete project management from tooling and engineering to secondary operations such as product printing. In addition to existing customers in the country, Clamcleats was attracted to Costa Rica by its trade incentives.

"Costa Rica is a safe and stable country, the safest in the whole of South and Central America," said Clamcleats' Alizée Levavasseur. "It is also an attractive country for foreign direct investment with friendly laws and regimes: free trade zone regime with tax exemption, import duty exemption and interesting trade agreements with the U.S."
