Apple builds data center headquarters for 2 billion US dollars

Apple makes one of the biggest investments in its history with the construction of a headquarters for its data centers. The Data Command Center in Arizona built on the site of GT Advanced Technologies. GTAT should actually produce the sapphire glass for Apple's iPhone but went into bankruptcy late last year because it was never able to deliver the required quality and the quantity. Apple uses the iPhone 6 instead protective glass from Corning.

The new Apple Center to 150 people finds work. For the necessary construction work is scheduled according to information from Apple 300 to 500 new jobs in the construction industry arise.

Arizona Governor Doug Ducey praised Apple's commitment: "The decision for the new facility in Mesa is a big win for Arizona and a proof for our business-friendly climate and our talented workers."

The site on which the guiding center is to be built, Apple has been one of 2013. The new facility will be 12 acres in size and also house a 70-megawatt photovoltaic plant.

John Giles, the mayor of Mesa, informed, according to that he could not imagine a better ending to the story. He likes the new plan better because Apple was directly involved and the company clamps no contractor, as was the case with GT Advanced Technologies. Employees should be paid better and the long-term outlook is much more stable, says Giles. "The iCloud will hover directly over Mesa, Arizona," said the mayor.

Apple had announced the withdrawal of GT Advances that they would create new jobs in Mesa.
