Apple’s campus in Cork is about to get a major upgrade, as the tech giant adds a new building to Hollyhill with a capacity for an extra 1,000 jobs. The new building will be completed by mid-2017.

Already employing 5,000 people in Ireland, the added capacity in Hollyhill will – if filled – bring that figure to more than 6,000.

Apple has become an important employer in Ireland and is also partnered with the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland to support research in offshore energy technology.

It is also establishing a €1m Ocean Energy Industry Fund to support innovative new ways of capturing wave energy and converting it to renewable electricity to power its facilities :

“For any company to be located at the same campus for over 30 years is a remarkable thing – that Apple continues to expand at this rate in 2015 is truly exceptional”, said the IDA’s Martin Shanahan (Foreign Direct Investment).

The news came during a visit by the Apple Chief Executive Tim Cook to Dublin this morning.
