Apple has announced plans to open a new campus, with location details scheduled for reveal later this year.
Inside a press release, the brand broadcast its goals to “create over 20,000 new jobs through hiring at existing campuses and opening a new one.” At present, Apple “employs 84,000 people in all 50 states.”
“Apple is a success story that could only have happened in America, and we are proud to build on our long history of support for the US economy,” said Apple CEO Tim Cook inside the statement. “We believe deeply in the power of American ingenuity, and we are focusing our investments in areas where we can have a direct impact on job creation and job preparedness. We have a deep sense of responsibility to give back to our country and the people who help make our success possible.”
Scant details about the new Apple campus were provided, save for the fact that it would “initially house technical support for customers.” Beyond the main Cupertino headquarters, its complex in Austin, Texas that employs around 6,000 people for customer tech support, is the company’s largest.
Apple also highlighted its support for green energy, declaring that all of its US facilities including this upcoming new campus, existing offices, retail outlets, and data centers, will be powered by 100 percent renewable energy sources such as solar, wind, and micro-hydro power.
