A Colombian manufacturing company has picked Tampa as its first base of operations in the United States.
Incofilt, which makes industrial filters, will open as Delasierra Filters Technology in the Regus co-working space at Corporate Center One, 222 N West Shore Blvd. The company will invest $1.5 million, starting with a team of advisers and hiring 10 support engineers within the first year.
“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,” Jose Luis Sierra, Incofilt’s director of engineering, said in a statement.
The company has already started hiring, and will begin operations in September.
