According to Ortega, in Nicaragua the company will be hiring more workers as production increases, but did not specify the number of employees it would be hiring.

“The company will be making new investments in both countries,” said Ortega.

For its part, the Multilateral Investment Guarantee Agency (Spanish: Organismo Multilateral de Garantía de Inversiones) will provide a guarantee the US$11 million dollars investment to the Colombian parent company, Corona, for the expansion and modernization of the Cerámica Centroamericana S.A., (Incesa) in Nicaragua, said the World Bank.
