Colombian manufacturer chooses Tampa for first U.S. operation
A Colombia-based manufacturer of industrial filters chose Tampa as the location for its first operating site in the United States.
Incofilt, dba Delasierra Filters Technology, signed a lease to operate out of co-working space Regus, in Corporate Center One, located at 2202 N. Westshore Blvd.
Delasierra will initially invest $1.5 million and start its operations with a team of commercial advisers and plans to hire 10 support engineers in its first year, according to a statement.
“Tampa provides all of the business advantages we need, from a strategic and logistical point of view, but the supportive business environment we found here was an added benefit,” said Jose Luis Sierra, director of engineering, Incofilt, in the statement. “From the very beginning of our research and prospecting, Tampa has opened its doors to us in an exceptional way. We are convinced that with this great support, we will quickly meet all of our objectives.”
Delasierra Filters Technology manufactures industrial filters, for manufacturing companies, and provides engineering services for filtration processes.
The Tampa Bay EDC connected Delasierra to several business resources to help set up its U.S. operations and introduced the company to CareerSource Tampa Bay for recruitment assistance.
