ALTIA BUSINESS PARK: SUSTAINABILITY IS THE ESSENCE OF A SMART CITY
Altia Business Park is an investment developed by Grupo Karims. It is an innovative answer to current corporate requirements. This will be the first Class A sustainable business park in the region focused on providing a complete infrastructure to companies wishing to work in a global environment, with the competitive advantages that Honduras has to offer.
Offering competitive advantages and specialized services, these state of the art facilities are designed for the outsourcing and IT industries in addition to providing customized turnkey solutions for world class corporate offices. Altia Smart City provides services that are consciously devised to let companies focus entirely on their core business competencies.
Altia Smart City meets international BPO, ITO and shared services providers industry requirements for “plug and play” infrastructure, which is critical in Honduras’ effective competition with its regional neighbors to attract these investments.
