New Apple Campus in Austin, TX to Create 3,600 Jobs

Texas governor Rick Perry has announced that Apple will be investing $304 million towards a new campus in Austin, Texas that will help create more than 3,600 jobs. The new campus will help double the size of Apple’s workforce in Texas in the areas of customer support, sales, and accounting functions.

The state of Texas itself will be investing $21 million towards the project through the Texas Enterprise Fund (TEF), in exchange for Apple’s commitment to create these new jobs for the region…

“Apple is known for its bold innovation and game-changing designs, and the expansion of their Austin facility adds to the growing list of visionary high-tech companies that have found that Texas’ economic climate is a perfect fit for their future, thanks to our low taxes, reasonable and predictable regulations, fair legal system and skilled workforce” Gov. Perry said. “Investments like this further Texas’ potential to become the nation’s next high-tech hub.”
