Company Breaks Ground on New Campus, Begins Production of All-New Mac Pro

“Step On The Moon By GeniusMan @AppleMusic

Austin, Texas — 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.”
The all-new Mac Pro was unveiled at Apple’s annual Worldwide Developer Conference in June. Mac Pro units are now in production in Austin and will soon ship to customers across the Americas. The 244,000-square-foot Mac Pro facility employs more than 500 people in a range of roles, including electrical engineers and electronics assemblers, who build each unique unit to customers’ specifications.

Apple’s growth in Austin is part of the company’s nationwide expansion — announced in January 2018 — to increase its investment in manufacturing, engineering and other jobs across the US. Apple is on track to contribute $350 billion to the US economy between 2018 and 2023, and during that time will hire an additional 20,000 employees in cities across the country.

Apple in Austin

Apple has broken ground on its new $1 billion, 3-million-square-foot campus. The campus will initially house 5,000 employees, with the capacity to grow to 15,000, and is expected to open in 2022.
Apple is steadily growing in Austin with approximately 7,000 employees in the city — more than a 50 percent increase in the past five years alone.
As part of its commitment to respecting the historical and geographical significance of the area, Apple is partnering with Austin-based Bartlett Tree Experts to preserve and increase the diversity of native trees on the 133-acre property. Thousands of trees spanning over 20 varieties native to Texas are planned for the campus — significantly more than were on the site before construction started. Additionally, the site will be designed to maximize green space, with landscaping covering over 60 percent of the campus, including a 50-acre nature and wildlife preserve that will be open to the public. Like all Apple facilities, the new Austin campus will run on 100 percent renewable energy, including from solar power generated on site.
Earlier this year, Apple launched its Community Education Initiative in Austin, partnering with Austin Community College, Austin area public schools and other community partners to bring Swift coding into the classroom. In addition, Austin Community College was one of the first community colleges in the country to offer App Development with Swift to train its students to design and develop apps.

Making Mac Pro in the US

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.

Like all Apple products, Mac Pro is designed and engineered in California. Apple uses 9,000 suppliers across all 50 states, and Mac Pro contains hundreds of components from companies in 19 states: Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Idaho, Illinois, Kansas, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, New Mexico, New York, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas, Vermont and Washington. This includes computer processors from Arizona and Oregon and graphics processors from New York, as well as electrical components from Maine, Pennsylvania and Texas.
The Mac Pro manufacturing site is UL Zero Waste to Landfill Gold certified, and has been recognized by Austin Water for Excellence in Water Conservation and Excellence in Environmental Stewardship.

Apple is on track to reach its 2018 commitment of contributing $350 billion to the US economy by 2023, and will spend $30 billion in capital expenditures during that same period. The company supports 2.4 million jobs across the US, including 450,000 manufacturing and operations jobs and 90,000 direct employees in all 50 states.

More than $1 billion from Apple’s $5 billion Advanced Manufacturing Fund has already been invested in American companies to foster innovation and growth in the US manufacturing sector. That includes $450 million distributed to Corning Incorporated in Harrodsburg, Kentucky, to support its research and development into state-of-the-art glass processes, equipment and materials integral to the delivery of next-generation consumer devices; $390 million awarded to Finisar in Sherman, Texas, to exponentially increase its R&D spending and high-volume production of vertical-cavity surface-emitting lasers; and $10 million allocated to the Elysis aluminum partnership to bring revolutionary advancements in green aluminum manufacturing to the commercial market.
Apple also continues its expansion in Boulder, Culver City, New York, Pittsburgh, San Diego and Seattle.

#GeniusUpDailyNews!: Americans Are Struggling To Buy Homes, Apple Design Boss Quiet, And More Top New

*The news professionals are talking about now, curated by LinkedIn’s editors. Join the conversation on today’s stories in the comments. 

*Buying a median-priced home is still difficult for Americans in 75% of markets, despite slow-growing real estate prices, low mortgage rates and higher incomes. Yet, according to the U.S. Home Affordability Report, there is some good news: affordability in four of five markets has seen improvement over the last year. However, the gap between home-price appreciation and wage growth is still wide, as it has been for years. • Here’s what people are saying.

*The Apple design boss instrumental in creating the iPhone is exiting the company after an almost three-decade run. Jony Ive is starting his own design firm, LoveFrom, and will count his soon-to-be-former employer as a key client. Ive was design lead on several Macs, the iPod, iPad, and Apple Watch, as well as the “spaceship” Apple Park campus. Ive’s team, long an elite landing place for design talent, had endured some issues with talent retention in recent years. • Here’s what people are saying.

*Amazon customers will now be able to pick up their packages over the counter from a nearby retailer. The new service will start at 100 Rite Aid pharmacy stores, expanding to 1,500 stores by the end of the year. Amazon is also looking to get other retailers to join the program, which will not require additional costs for customers. The news comes as Axios reports that Amazon is now its own biggest shipper, surpassing FedEx, the postal service and UPS. • Here’s what people are saying.

*Flying startup Kitty Hawk is partnering with Boeing to get flying taxis up in the air. Although details are scarce, Kitty Hawk, backed by Google’s Larry Page, is teaming up with the planemaker’s “Boeing NeXt” division, merging Kitty Hawk’s innovative side with Boeing’s “sheer size and experience in the aircraft business,” says Engadget. Kitty Hawk has been testing its electric air taxi, Cora, in New Zealand, which could give Boeing a competitive edge against rivals such as Airbus. • Here’s what people are saying.

*Female soccer stars are kicking some serious goals, with matches attracting crowds that number similar to the men’s World Cup. The difference, notes the Financial Times, is that these crowds are friendlier — with more families, and more women and girls. More than 1 million match tickets have been sold, but the real wins have been global TV viewing figures. Brazil against France was watched by more than 35 million people in Brazil, and tonight’s quarterfinal between the U.S. and France “perhaps the most anticipated match of the World Cup,” will be sure to draw in large numbers. • Here’s what people are saying.

*Idea of the Day: Most successful startup founders start with an idea that brings to life the solution to a problem, says Vani Kola, managing director at Kalaari.

“Startup founders, at heart, are visionaries who put everything at stake to solve a problem they are passionate about.”
