KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo reports that it will be Flextronics who assembles the new Mac Pro in Texas, according to Macotakara. The site says Flextronics is known as world 2nd largest EMS company after Foxconn.

Notably, MacRumors also says it's received a tip that Flextronics will be assembling the "Made in the USA" Mac at a new facility in Texas.

Flextronics' new Texas facilities are housed in a 450,000 square foot building in Fort Worth formerly used by Nokia. Flextronics will be using the site for production of Motorola's Moto X smartphone, but our source indicated that Apple's production will also take place there.

If you haven't seen the new Mac Pro you should definitely check it out here. Apple hasn't set a release date or price for the new system yet; however, it should be available later this year.

Mac Pros will be built at the Austin, TX Flextronics site. By "built" I mean from surface mount, testing, diagnostics to final assembly and test. Very similar to what they do for Cisco Systems and others. This new relationship has been in the making for since last fall but they want to keep it quiet because of the Foxconn etc. Think about how convenent it is to be located less than a mile from the booming Apple campus. They can develop, prototype and build. Very cool things to come.

I want this. I need this. (well, no, not really) But I have got to come up with some kind of scheme to justify it to myself. I would want a see-through "case" so as to be able to look at it on my desk. I am a sick man.
