Apple expanding in Arizona

appleApple will be expanding in Arizona, with a $2 billion investment in Mesa on a command center for the company’s global networks — representing one of the company’s largest investments in history.

The facility is expected to employ 150 full-time Apple employees, with 300-500 construction and trade jobs. Additionally, Apple is making a significant investment to power the facility with 100 percent renewable energy, according to a statement released by Governor Ducey, building and financing solar projects that will take advantage of Arizona’s excellent solar resources. The projects will produce 70 MW of clean energy, enough to power more than 14,500 Arizona homes.

On January 27, 2015, Apple announced financial results for its fiscal 2015 first quarter ended December 27, 2014. The Company posted record quarterly revenue of $74.6 billion and record quarterly net profit of $18 billion.

  1. High county property taxes are not helping attract businesses here. Especially the high tech, high paying type of jobs we really need. Even if they considered, all they would have to do is look at the horrible infrastructure Chuck Huckelberry and his four bobble heads have created by using on 20% of road funding for roads. Would you want to spend billions as Apple is doing here or in the far better run Maricopa County? It’s a no-brainer.

  2. jdfast – come on man – “We have a trolly !” why wouldn’t anyone want to come here to deal with the ideo-tourists the city so desires – the wonderfult district one edumacational system and ‘ THE FOX” downtown – and the parklots on the west side of the freeway are served with that trolly so we have a 90 million dollar shuttle! of course it can’t turn left so if your off the line… oh well – who wouldn’t want to do business with COT business development department ? It’s laughable the entire business sector here does anything it can to go around these guys here in Tucson – eyes roll when the name is mentioned – the rules are who your talking to that day… its a total joke. The new “BAJA” namesake is ‘ perfect ‘

  3. Humm, another billion dollar industry settles in the Phoenix area?? Anyone ever stop to wonder why? Could it be the crony system, streets, education, leadership (or lack thereof),taxes or bureaucracy at the city county level? Like there isn’t enough vacant land to build on here but all the BS that businesses have to go through and the reputation that this area has earned over the last 30 years is simply a show stopper. Call centers and canneries are about the best this area can do. Is it any wonder this area can’t keep their best and brightest and are saddled with a median income much below the Phoenix metro area???

  4. I guess Apple doesn’t appreciate the thousands of illegals being recruited to fill the TUSD seats to study radical chicano activism. The future Grijavalista toilet cleaners just don’t fit the employee profile Apple is looking for.

    Education of our children is our future. Viva Aztlan!
