Jan. 2015 Apollo Endosurgery will start operations in Costa Rica

As CINDE reported, precision equipment and medical exportations in Costa Rica have grown twice as fast as the rest of the free trade zone exportations. This ratifies recognition of our country among medical manufacturing companies, thanks to the human talent that the country offers.

Luis Guillermo Solis, President of the Republic, expressed his gratification with this announcement: "I am pleased by the announced decision of this company to come to our country and trust Costa Rican’s to produce innovative devices. Our goal as a government is to generate quality jobs through foreign investments; therefore these ads fill us with satisfaction".

For his part, Mr. Todd Newton, CEO of Apollo Endosurgery, Inc., stated: " Costa Rica is highly regarded in the industry of medical devices as an excellent place to invest due to its great human talent combined with a stable regulatory environment. We at Apollo Endosurgery are pleased to be part of the business community in Costa Rica"

Our firm, Soley, Saborío & Asociados, assumed the responsibility of supporting Apollo Endosurgery in all the legal processes required for installation and start-up. Most of our professional teams were involved in this important work, being led by our partner Emilia Saborío Pozuelo and the valuable contribution of our associate Milena Jaikel Gazel, who directed and coordinated the multidisciplinary work required. We wish Apollo Endosurgery a successful experience in Costa Rica.
