Apple said that it’s opening a second campus in the U.S., as part of a plan to pour billions of dollars into the domestic economy.
“The company plans to establish an Apple campus in a new location, which will initially house technical support for customers,” Apple said in a statement on Wednesday. “The location of this new facility will be announced later in the year.”
Apple said more broadly that it plans to invest $350 billion in the U.S. over the next five years.
The company just finished $5 billion of renovations on its headquarters in Cupertino, California, and is now gearing up to expand its reach and its workforce.
Apple said it would create 20,000 new jobs “through hiring at existing campuses and opening a new one.”
It’s not the only U.S. tech giant planning a splashy new dwelling.
Amazon has been fielding proposals from cities in its own race for a so-called HQ2. The e-tailer is expected to name finalist cities in the next few weeks.
