From Apple Newsroom: Company Breaks Ground on New Campus, Begins Production of All-New Mac Pro.
Apple today announced the start of construction on its new campus in Austin, Texas, as part of its broad expansion in the city. At a production facility just a short distance away, Apple is preparing to ship the all-new Mac Pro to customers starting in December.
“Building the Mac Pro, Apple’s most powerful device ever, in Austin is both a point of pride and a testament to the enduring power of American ingenuity,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO. “With the construction of our new campus in Austin now underway, Apple is deepening our close bond with the city and the talented and diverse workforce that calls it home. Responsible for 2.4 million American jobs and counting, Apple is eager to write our next chapter here and to keep contributing to America’s innovation story.”
My take: Lots more where this came from, including the first photo of U.S. workers assembling Mac Pro cheese graters, a map of the 19 states making MacPro components, and a plan to plant thousands of trees spanning over 20 varieties native to Texas. There was plenty of room, if Apple wanted to mention today’s scheduled Presidential visit.
