Apple moves to expand its United States manufacturing at Mesa, Arizona site

Apple moves to expand its United States manufacturing at Mesa, Arizona site”

The company is looking to repurpose the site to build data server cabinets for use in data centers, according to the Mesa city government.

Apple says the facility at Mesa will start with 150 high-paying jobs, with recruitment for engineers, services technicians and managers having started previous year.

The filings said Apple already has the "authority to produce certain components for consumer electronics" in the Mesa area, "the current request would add finished products and foreign status materials/components to the scope of authority".

Apple's center in Arizona would consolidate Apple's production of servers used in data centers in OR and Arizona. However, this mentioned approval would allow the company to import a host of components needed to manufacture data centers, without the need to pay any customs duty. It appears as though the first product Apple plans to make with this expansion is finished server assembly cabinets (duty-free) for its data centers.

Congress looks to start funding, building a Mexican border wall quickly
Donald Trump is going to go ahead and build a vast, multi-billion dollar wall on the border with Mexico , just as he promised. Trump tweeted this morning that the media are dishonest for failing to report that Mexico will pay for wall at a later date.

Cupertino-based Apple has applied to renew its ability to operate in free trade zone in Arizona, a move that could enable the company to produce devices and equipment in the United States at reduced costs.

The company intends to broaden its operations for final assembly of servers at a data center in Mesa, Arizona, the federal register filing stated.

CNBC reached out to Apple for comment. When the company declared bankruptcy, Apple took ownership of the plant.

In 2014, Apple announced its intention to turn the facility into a next-generation data center. The data centre was originally a manufacturing facility, but was later repurposed as a data centre. This particular hardware isn't items that Apple will sell to other firms, it is for its own use internally. The nature of the product is not for end users but for other global data centers that will be supported from the site.
