Tim Cook tweets photos of his visit to Mac Pro factory, Apple ops campus in Texas

“While it was revealed yesterday that Apple executives Tim Cook and Eddy Cue had visited the company’s new operations campus in Austin, Texas, Cook has just tweeted a photo of a second visit he made to Apple’s nearby Mac Pro manufacturing facility,” Eric Slivka reports for MacRumors.

“Apple’s Mac Pro manufacturing facility is run by Flextronics as part of an initiative to bring manufacturing of some Apple products back to the United States,” Slivka reports. “Flextronics’ Mac Pro facility is roughly a mile from Apple’s new Austin campus, which is actually an expansion of the company’s long-standing operations campus in the city. ”

“The campus expansion is major effort that will see Apple investing $300 million to add at least 3,600 workers at the site by 2021,” Slivka reports. “The overall project will encompass roughly one million square feet of space, with the just-opened first phase including two out of a planned six buildings on the site.”
