Apple Campus expansion to bring a Thousand New Jobs to Cork

The Taoiseach, the Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation and IDA Ireland, today welcomed a significant announcement that Apple will be expanding its campus in Hollyhill, Co.Cork and adding a new building that will provide new office space and room for 1,000 additional employees by mid-2017.

Apple’s presence continues to have an enormous impact on job creation in Ireland – it is estimated that it supports nearly 18,000 jobs across the country, including over 5,000 direct Apple employees - an increase of 25% in the past year alone.

Apple has also announced that it is partnering with the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI) to support research in offshore energy technology and is establishing a €1M Ocean Energy Industry Fund. This will support innovative new ways of capturing wave energy and converting it to renewable electricity in support of their global commitment to powering all facilities with renewable energy.

Apple has had a presence in Ireland since 1980, when the company opened its first facility in Cork. The company's Cork operation is responsible for manufacturing, supply chain, AppleCare and shared services operations. Today’s news follows an announcement by Apple in February of this year where they revealed plans to put an €850 million data centre in Athenry, Co. Galway.
