  • Irish Eyes Are Smiling on Potential Apple Expansion

    Ireland, as we've previously reported, is an important nation for Apple. And its importance is poised to only grow this year as Apple looks toward a bigger expansion of its business operations within the region.

    According to a published report in the Irish Independent, Apple -- which has had a presence in Ireland since 1981 -- is prepping for an expansion that could "deliver a multi-million euro boost to the Cork construction sector and generate hundreds of new jobs."

    Incredibly, if you're not familiar, the Cork operation not only provides specialized manufacturing, as of this writing it is also the biggest non-California based Apple sales and services support network.

    The report notes that Apple's purported interest in expanding its Irish operations is definitive proof of Apple's "long-term commitment to Ireland, despite controversies last year in the US and UK over its Irish tax affairs."
