Apple To Move Some Manufacturing Back To United States
(CNN) Apple CEO Tim Cook says the company plans to start manufacturing a computer in the United States next year.
“We’ve been working for years on doing more and more in the United States,” Cook said in an interview with Brian Williams on NBC’s “Rock Center,” scheduled to air Thursday night. “Next year, we will do one of our existing Mac lines in the United States.”
Apple has received a lot of bad press for conditions at the company that manufactures their devices in China.
Cook did not say which computer will be built here but some new models of the new iMac have been arriving stamped “Assembled in the U.S.A.”
An Apple spokesman told CNN that Apple will be investing $100 million in the move.
Cook told NBC that Apple isn’t concerned about the higher cost of manufacturing in the United States creating pressure to raise prices.
