Consumer electronics distributor, Ingram Micro has announced the opening of a new facility in Costa Rica, creating some 300 local jobs. As the largest repair facility in Costa Rica, the facility will further support Ingram Micro Mobility's growing business in Latin America.

The Costa Rica operation is led by Guillermo Araya, plant manager, who reports to Newell.
