Apple opening Arizona plant: Alliance for American Manufacturing (AAM) Statement

Posted by admin on 11/05/2013

Apple Inc. has announced the opening of a new plant in Mesa, Arizona, that will manufacture components for its products.

Commented Alliance for American Manufacturing (AAM) President Scott Paul:

"We’re happy to see that Apple is taking its domestic manufacturing initiative seriously. Despite a recent rebound, the manufacturing sector has lost roughly 5 million jobs since 2000, which is a hole we won’t dig out of without policy support from our elected officials in Washington. Still, it’s significant that one of the world’s most successful tech companies recognizes the value of making it in America. Hopefully this is the front end of a larger trend."
