$ 1 Billion Apple Data Center / Server Farm in Maiden NC. 225 Acre Site on HWY 321 and Startown Road in Maiden NC

Gov. Bev Perdue announced on June 3rd, 2009 that Apple had selected North Carolina as the location for a new data center. The company is expected to invest more than $1 billion in the project over nine years.

The facility is expected to employ at least 50 full-time employees. The legislation requires that the average wage exceed the wage standard of the county in which it's located. A data center such as this will typically contract locally for services such as server maintenance and repair, building and HVAC maintenance, landscaping and security expenditures that could range from $5 million to $6 million annually in the region and create up to 250 jobs. The North Carolina Department of Commerce projects that a data center investment of $1 billion would create more than 3,000 jobs in the regional economy, including hundreds of jobs related to construction and others created as a result of economic growth.
