NC Lands Apple Campus Bringing $1 Billion and 3,000 Jobs to Wake County:
Apple on Monday announced a new $1 billion-plus campus and engineering hub that will create thousands of high-paying jobs in the Triangle over the next five years.The jobs are lucrative, offering an average salary around $185,000. Positions will be primarily in artificial intelligence, machine learning and software engineering, according to information provided by the Department of Commerce and the EIC.
Apple expects to invest some $1 billion in the new campus. The company also agreed to retain some 1,100 existing jobs across North Carolina. North Carolina’s Department of Commerce insisted that the Apple campus remained a possibility. Gov. Roy Cooper once described the Apple project as an “open recruiting situation.” Apple’s investment in the state also will include $100 million targeting programs at schools and community colleges in the Triangle area and the state.
Another $110 million will target infrastructure spending from broadband to schools across 80 North Carolina counties.
The addition of Apple further strengthens the Triangle as one of the country’s leading high-tech and life science hubs. The Raleigh-Durham metro is already home to IBM’s largest campus, Raleigh-based Red Hat, which is part of IBM, and other high-profile firms such as Lenovo (the world’s top PC seller and a global leader in supercomputers), Cree, Oracle, Cisco and NetApp.
On Monday, it became a reality as the state’s Economic Investment Committee – which is part of Commerce – settled with Apple on a contract calling for millions in tax incentives in return for Apple meeting new job requirements.
