On February 2, Arizona won the economic development “Super Bowl.” Just one day after the real Super Bowl was played in the Phoenix West Valley, Apple, one of the world’s most innovative companies, announced it’s investment in Arizona.
Arizona Governor Doug Ducey stood with state and local leaders to share the news that Apple will expand its investment and commitment at Eastmark, DMB’s newest community in Mesa, Arizona. Apple plans to make this facility one of their leading global command centers, operating a data center from that location. The company’s investment will create more than 150 permanent jobs and Apple expects to continue to put hundreds of contractors to work making on-going improvements in technology for the data center.
Apple, an international leader in technology, will invest more than $2 billion over the next 10 years to retrofit the facility at Eastmark from its manufacturing operations to a data center and command center for operations.
Apple has some ambitious sustainability goals for the facility and has committed to using solar power, and other sustainable resources to meet their goals.
This is one of the largest investments that Apple has made in the United States. Apple’s 30-year commitment to our state will bring hundreds of high quality jobs to the area, solidifying the vision for Eastmark as a vital economic engine for the Southeast Valley.
This investment by Apple, creating new jobs and economic prosperity for our community, signals that Arizona is open for business! Eastmark will continue to add other high qulity employers in the future.
