LANCO, a Puerto Rican paint manufacturing company, set up shop in Nicaragua in 2016. The company started with a small distribution facility, which has evolved into a world-class distribution center.

LANCO stressed the important role played by the Agency: “when we started building the plant, there was no energy supply and, how are we supposed to run a plant without electricity? That’s when we first contacted PRONicaragua and the problem was addressed by a staff willing to solve the problem. The answer was surprising. The government decided to build a power station to feed a zone which, in the end, would benefit from this initiative.”
