Apple will manufacture its US-built Mac computers in Texas, says CEO Tim Cook

Apple to manufacture US built Mac in Texas, possibly at Foxconn owned facilities

| Business, Financial & Legal News | Posted: May 22, 2013 3:38 pm

On Tuesday, Apple CEO Tim Cook made an appearance in front of Congress to defend the company's recent tax dodging accusations, but not all of the conversation was about taxes. Cook told the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations that Apple will be manufacturing it's US made Mac in Texas.

"We're investing $100 million to build a Mac product line here in the U.S. The product will be assembled in Texas, include components made in Illinois and Florida, and rely on equipment produced in Kentucky and Michigan."

 

While this is good news, not all is as shiny as it appears. Apple will not be building any in-house manufacturing facilities, but will rely on existing manufacturers who have existing plants in the area. While nothing is official, as AllThingsD pointed out, China based Foxconn does own and operate several manufacturing facilities in Texas.
