Apple broke ground on its new $1 billion, 3-million-square-foot campus in Austin, TX early 2019. The campus will initially house 5,000 employees, with the capacity to grow to 15,000, and is expected to open in 2022. The sprawling 133-acre campus will provide a wide variety of engineering, research and development, operations, finance, sales and customer support jobs. Like all Apple facilities, the new Austin campus will run on 100 percent renewable energy, including from solar power generated on site.
This new facility will be the home of the new Mac Pro. The all-new Mac Pro is Apple’s most powerful machine ever, and 15,000 times faster than the original Mac. Apple and its manufacturing partners invested over $200 million in the Mac Pro facility in Austin, building out the complex assembly line where the Mac Pro is produced. Each Mac Pro travels a distance of 1,000 feet along the production line, with some components requiring precision placement within the width of a human hair.
“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.”
