From a new facility in Costa Rica, BriskHeat will boost its production throughout the Americas.

The BriskHeat facility in the Green Park Free Zone in Alajuela will produce thermal blankets and insulation for heating and gas line insulation, condensation prevention and gas/fluid uniformity. According to the company, its current high volume facilities in other locations are near capacity, so the expansion will help BriskHeat grow and reduce delivery times.

BriskHeat manufactures heating parts, controls and accessories for applications in various industries, including semiconductors, pharmaceuticals, aviation/aerospace, food and injection molding. With its Costa Rican operations, the company says it primarily will supply the semiconductor industry with an eye toward future growth opportunities in the consumer goods and life sciences sectors.

The maker of flexible surface and immersion heating products has partnered with the National Learning Institute (INA) in Costa Rica to seek talent and take advantage of their technical assistance during the early stages of training. By the end of 2023, the company expects to create 200 new jobs in Costa Rica.
