Apple is investing more than US$100 million on a factory for building part of its Mac line in the United States, CEO told “Bloomberg Businessweek” (http://macte.ch/RfJXU) in an interview.
“Next year we’re going to bring some production to the U.S.,” he told “Bloomberg Businessweek.” “This doesn’t mean that Apple will do it ourselves, but we’ll be working with people and we’ll be investing our money.”
He didn’t elaborate on where the manufacturing would happen or how much would be produced in the U.S. However, he said Apple will work with partners and that the operations would include more than just final assembly.
“I don’t think we have a responsibility to create a certain kind of job,” Cook told “Bloomberg Businessweek.” “But I think we do have a responsibility to create jobs.”
