  • Apple's Rumored Israel-Based Facility May Open in Weeks

    As MMi reported Tuesday, the latest data from research firm Gartner indicates that Apple spent approximately $17 billion on semiconductors in 2011, effectively becoming the top chip customer in all of technology.

    Prior to the report, however, rumors had persisted for months that Apple's unrelenting need for semiconductors had prompted the company to lay the groundwork for its own semiconductor development center in Israel. According to the latest reports out of the Middle East, Apple is now just weeks away from launching the long-awaited and seemingly practical new research and development center.

    Apple so far received several hundred resumes from engineers who want to work in the Israeli branch of technology giant.
    Should the plant open its doors in Haifa, an industrial area south of the Israeli city of Matam, Apple will have some top high-tech neighbors, as Intel and Microsoft similarly operate large plants in the immediate region.

    Just last month, Israeli publication Globes revealed that Apple's facility would be directed by Aharon Aharon, a prominent veteran of the technology industry in Israel. "Aharon is scheduled to spend several months at Apple headquarters in Cupertino before returning to Israel to begin activities at the Apple Israel development center," Globes reported. "Aharon will begin operations regardless of whether Apple buys an Israeli company, and will begin hiring staff suitable for the U.S. company's planned areas of activity."
