Mumbai, India: Aegis Limited, a global outsourcing services provider and part of the $17 billion Essar Group, announced today that it is expanding its footprint in Costa Rica by opening a 900-seat call center in Rohrmoser, San Jose, Costa Rica.

“Costa Rica has played a vital part of our success. Aegis began operations in Costa Rica in 2006 and today we have nearly 900 employees," said Sandip Sen, President for Global Customer Lifecycle Management, Aegis. “Our Costa Rica location serves US-based clients in healthcare, banking, travel and hospitality, retail, and technology. Client engagements include customer care, customer acquisition, reservations, technical support, and collections. The new Aegis Tower will be the perfect blend of additional capacity and reduced costs. It will provide us with 25% more agent seats and a substantial savings in lease cost, in a logistically better section of San Jose.”

The new facility is located in the Rohrmoser section of San Jose, close to the US Embassy and the National Stadium. Sen added, “We are expanding our client engagements for many of the world's leading brands. Our new center in Costa Rica is the latest demonstration of our commitment to creating jobs in the Americas.”

Aegis Tower will serve as the primary Aegis location in the country. The company has already moved client engagements into the center with more to come.
