The value added resource of CEA Global Dominican has enhanced the ability of this fast-growing company to transfer products from low volume production to high volume production in the Dominican Republic taking advantage of several key cost saving incentives. This global business strategy will stimulate substantial growth of new contract product design and development work at CEA Technologies in Colorado Springs resulting in increased revenue and employment.
