Apple to add 3,600 jobs in Texas with state help

Posted: Updated:

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Apple Inc. will build a new facility in Austin that is expected to create more than 3,600 jobs.

Gov. Rick Perry announced the facility Friday. He says Apple's new campus will more than double the number of workers Apple has in Texas during the next decade.

Apple will get $21 million through the Texas Enterprise Fund, created by the Legislature in 2003 to lure businesses and job growth. Perry says a local incentive agreement with Austin and Travis County is still pending.

The new campus will provide customer support, sales and accounting functions for Apple.
