  • New R&D Center in Yokohama, Japan to Begin Construction This Year

    Japanese news site NHK recently reported that Apple’s new R&D center in Japan will be built in Yokohama. Currently, Yokohama has a population of 3.7 million people and is the second largest city in Japan after Tokyo. Apparently the Cupertino-based company bought Panasonic’s factory remains and will be building a facility that is 25,000 square meters with four floors. It was noted that due to the size of the facility, it should hold up to a couple of hundred employees, as the Japanese Prime Minister also stated that the place will be “on par with Apple’s biggest R&D centers in Asia.”

    Construction has been noted to begin before the end of 2015 and should be finished sometime next year. The facility has also been reported to use recycled trees and water and use low levels of energy to make it an environmentally friendly center. Apple is currently working on their new spaceship campus which should also be completed sometime next year. Apple has a lot going for them, let’s hope their business will be enough to keep up with all their future plans.
