Since 1912 Howe has continued to be the proven best choice in the Ice Flaker marketplace, and because of our continued success in Central America, we have expanded our sales locations to include beautiful San José, Costa Rica. Here, the “Rican” saying of ‘Pura Vida’ paves the way for Howe to provide our robust quality flake ice machines to the region. As industry leader know, without the coldest and longest lasting ice, the Central American region would be deprived of fresh quality food, discounting the Rican ‘Only life’ mantra.
San José provides the region comprised of Costa Rica, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Guatemala, and Honduras, the ability to quickly access replacement
parts and equipment while enjoying the benefits of CAFTA (Central American Free Trade Agreement). Locals enjoy virtually duty-free imports while benefiting from the superior craftsmanship of the Chicago made ice-flake technology and an efficient supply chain that delivers lower lead-times to market process.
Affording industry leaders with Howe’s quality is a natural fit as Central American’s are demanding increased food processing and safety standards; not to mention all of the benefits that an Energy-Star partner provides in helping maintain lower operating costs.
The new office is located in Escazú, a short 30-minute drive from the international airport and has quick access to major industrial and supermarket retailers in the area. The office, complete with in-stock machinery, parts, service, and sales representatives, is now local and open for business at your service.
So, if your travels bring you to San José, or if you’re a Central America local, give us a call or better yet, stop in and say hello to find out why Howe is synonymous with Pura Vida.
