Report: Apple mulls upstate NY for manufacturing

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo “seemed to acknowledge” on a radio show that Apple may be behind a plan to build a 3.2-million square-foot computer chip factory in upstate New York, the Times Union (Albany) reports. The plan has allegedly been pitched to state economic development officials, but not further made public by the company. Cuomo was asked about speculation involving Apple’s interest in the state for a manufacturing site, and he didn’t shy away from mentioning the company by name. “Well, we’re shopping a lot of different companies at any given time,” Cuomo said. “Apple has a lot of competition, obviously, for their location. I don’t think that they’re anywhere yet in the decision-making.” The Times Union reports the “top-secret Apple customer” — possibly Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. — has scouted sites in upstate NY. Apple CEO Tim Cook recently announced the company would bring some Mac production to the U.S. next year; the company will invest more than $100-million in the expansion. [via Apple Insider]
