Tim Cook Reveals Apple is Bringing Some Mac Production Back to the U.S.
Apple CEO Tim Cook reveals that the company is spending $100 million to bring some Mac production to the U.S. in an interview with Bloomberg.
"It’s not known well that the engine for the iPhone and iPad is made in the U.S., and many of these are also exported—the engine, the processor. The glass is made in Kentucky. And next year we are going to bring some production to the U.S. on the Mac. We’ve been working on this for a long time, and we were getting closer to it. It will happen in 2013. We’re really proud of it. We could have quickly maybe done just assembly, but it’s broader because we wanted to do something more substantial. So we’ll literally invest over $100 million. This doesn’t mean that Apple will do it ourselves, but we’ll be working with people, and we’ll be investing our money."
This explains recent reports that some of the new iMacs are 'Assembled in the U.S.A.'.
