We know Apple wants to increase manufacturing in the U.S., how about a chip plant in Upstate New York? Rumors are that a “top secret” chip factory (well, not really “secret” anymore, huh?) could involve Apple.
“We’re shopping a lot of different companies at any given time,” Cuomo said. “Apple has a lot of competition, obviously, for their location. I don’t think they’re anywhere yet in the decision-making.”
According to the Times Union, the company behind the secretive project is “likely a major Apple supplier.” It’s believed that Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. could be involved in the discussions.
Okay, sounds plausible to me. Maybe even probable. I would say that it would be well over a year before a plant of any scale or complexity would be cranking out chips though.
