Intel has had an important manufacturing and research presence in Costa Rica since 1997. The award-winning Intel campus in Heredia is located just 12 miles (19 kilometers) west from the capital of San José.
The employees of Intel Costa Rica assemble and test microprocessors, design electronic circuits, and provide financial services for the entire corporation.
Our 126-acre La Ribera campus, is dedicated to the assembly, testing and distribution of the world's fastest processors including the Intel® Xeon™ processor, Intel® Itanium® processor, and Intel® Core™ 2 Duo processor.
La Ribera is also home to Intel’s Shared Service Centers supporting several business groups including Finance, Information Technology, Procurement Operations, and LADS (Latin American Design Services).
Intel Costa Rica’s Ultra park campus (CRU) is home to IT Enterprise Production Services operations. This group's capabilities include Office Service Desk, Global System Management, and Telecom Helpdesk. CRU is located just 15 minutes away from La Ribera campus; a shuttle service available between campuses allows employees to enjoy the recreational area and other benefits available at La Ribera.
Intel Costa Rica participates in a number of social responsibility projects in the community, focusing their efforts on education and the environment.
Intel Costa Rica is three-time winner of a Social Responsibility award given by the Costa Rican-American Chamber of Commerce and has been awarded with the National Safety Award for five years in a row.
As a part of Social Responsibility programs, Intel Costa Rica inaugurated two Intel® Computer Clubhouses, which provide young people a safe place to visit and learn about technology after school.
Intel Costa Rica supports technology education through the Intel® Teach Program, an ever-expanding program in this country and around the world. Through this program, which uses the latest technologies, Intel employees train primary and secondary teachers to use technology effectively in the classroom. This program prepares Latin American students to compete in a technical world.
Intel Costa Rica operations have not only had a positive impact in the social and educational area; but also affected Costa Rica’s economy. The current major export is computer chips, thanks to Intel's presence.
