The world's largest wholesale technology distributor Ingram Micro said this week it is opening a new facility in Costa Rica for its Ingram Micro Mobility mobile device lifecycle services and logistics solutions subsidiary.
The facility is designed to support Ingram Micro Mobility’s growing business in Latin America. Initially, the facility will be fully dedicated to supporting the company’s mobile device lifecycle services, specifically device recovery and technical repair.
The facility primarily serves Ingram Micro Mobility’s partnership with a major U.S. mobile carrier, creating added capacity and efficiencies to support smartphone recovery operations.
“We have added capacity, which we can further expand as our customers’ services requirements continue to grow, while also creating efficiencies within our operations,” said Christopher Newell, vice president global reverse logistics of Ingram Micro Mobility. “We chose Costa Rica because of its impressive infrastructure and highly talented workforce. This location also further extends our reach into the important Latin American market.”
The Costa Rica operation is led by Guillermo Araya, plant manager, who reports to Newell.
Ingram Micro Mobility was created as a sub-brand after Ingram Micro’s purchase in 2012 of the technology-sector-focused logistics company Brightpoint. - Eric Johnson
