Apple's big byte, second-largest operation in worldApple's big byte, second-largest operation in worldhttps://www.recenter.tamu.edu/news/newstalk-texas/?Item=104972015-09-07T05:00:00Z2015-09-15T19:00:00Z

​​​​​​​​​​​​​AUSTIN - Apple Inc. — the world’s largest consumer electronics company — has quietly transformed 38 acres of wooded land off Research Blvd. in Northwest Austin into its second-largest operation in the world.​

When the California-based technology giant completes the campus in 2016, it will include seven limestone-and-glass office buildings with a combined 1.1 million sf of space.​​

The first four buildings on the campus have opened, and, by the time all seven are completed by late next year, the site
will house thousands of workers needed to support Apple’s continued growth.

If Apple reaches hiring figures — 3,600 new full-time jobs while retaining at least 3,100 existing full-time jobs — it would make it the second-largest technology employer in Central Texas behind Dell Inc., which has about 14,000 local workers.
