Key U.S. Investment Projects

Cupertino, California

Our new headquarters is nearing completion. We’ve taken nearly 100 acres of asphalt and concrete and turned them into a landscape of 9,000 trees, walking paths, and grasslands. Designed to inspire creativity and collaboration, Apple Park is one of the largest construction projects in the world, and will support thousands of jobs in the local area when completed.

Austin, Texas

Austin is home to over 6,000 employees, and in the last year we’ve opened two new campuses as we plan for additional growth.

Mesa, Arizona

We’re investing billions of dollars to expand our Mesa facility into a global command center. When completed, the Mesa center will serve as a key logistics and operations hub, supporting all of our data centers around the world.

Maiden, North Carolina

We’re doubling the size and capacity of our Maiden data center, and adding five new solar projects to increase its production of on-site clean energy to 87 megawatts.

Prineville, Oregon

Since we first opened this data center in 2013, we’ve more than doubled its size. We’re also investing in local infrastructure and installing innovative micro-hydro generation systems to help power the data center with clean, renewable energy.

Reno, Nevada

As we expand our Nevada data center, we’re working with NV Energy on our largest solar investment to date, which will produce 270 megawatts of clean power.

  1. Direct Apple employees as of December 31, 2016.
  2. Analysis Group analyzed Apple’s impact on the U.S. job market and economy by using information on the total amount Apple spent on goods and services in the U.S. in 2016, and applying that information to Type-1 employment multipliers developed by the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis. The chosen bill-of-goods approach relies on a detailed breakdown of Apple’s purchases from input suppliers. These numbers do not include any additional jobs that have resulted from the increased spending of individuals and households whose income is directly or indirectly tied to Apple’s direct manufacturing spend and investment.
