Apple Inc said on Thursday it would spend $1 billion to build a second campus in Austin, Texas, that will house up to 15,000 workers as part of a broader push by USA companies to create more domestic jobs.

Apple said it added 6,000 jobs to its United States workforce in 2018 and now employs 90,000 people, with plans to add 20,000 jobs in the U.S. by 2023.

As a result, Apple will likely bump Dell and H-E-B from the top as the largest private employers in Austin in the coming years.

Over the next three years, Apple said it will establish new sites in a number of other cities, including Seattle; San Diego; Culver City, California; New York; Boulder, Colorado; and Pittsburgh.

Additional offices will also open in San Diego and Culter City, however, the largest new office outside of its global headquarters will be its new $1-billion campus in Austin. Apple already has an Austin office that employs 6,200 people-the second-largest concentration behind the company's northern California headquarters. The plan to create more than 20,000 jobs included a new campus and $10 billion toward data centers across the country.

Earlier this year, Daily Hive reported that Apple had leased 60,000-sq-ft of office space within the under-construction 400 West Georgia Street tower in downtown Vancouver.

Austin is one of the fastest growing U.S. cities with a population of almost 1 million, and is home to the University of Texas and a plethora of tech companies. The new campus will be near its existing facility in the North Austin area.

Kelly, who is expected to leave around the end of this year, has been an important part of the president's daily structure. As for other rumored candidates for the job, one of them literally co-authored a book entitled, Let Trump Be Trump .

However, in recent months, Cook has modified that view, saying in an interview this year that "it's not true that the iPhone is not made in the United States". That's not too much compared to the packages Virginia and NY gave Amazon in order to be the host cities for its new headquarters.

"This shows that a business-friendly state not only offers low taxes and competitive incentives, but is also welcoming to all workers", Straus said.

Apple's ambitions in Austin took another step in 2013, when Cook confirmed rumors that the company was building its new Mac Pro computers in the city.

In January, when Apple announced plans to expand, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel said the city would compete for the company.

It will be used for a wide variety of tasks, including engineering, R&D, operations, sales, and more.

"I would appreciate it if you put in there that the landlord would not comment", said Mark Barbieri, executive vice president of Washington Holdings, the Two Union Square landlord.

The firm is already in the process of expanding its data centres in North Carolina, Arizona and Nevada and past year announced it was building a new data centre in Waukee, Iowa, forking out £1.3bn for the work.
