Apple will continue to feed the U.S. economy with a $430 billion deal with Broadcom to purchase U.S.-made semiconductors.
The FBAR filters will be designed and built in several key American manufacturing and technology hubs, including Fort Collins, Colorado, where Broadcom has a major facility.
“We’re thrilled to make commitments that harness the ingenuity, creativity, and innovative spirit of American manufacturing,” stated Tim Cook, Apple CEO, on Tuesday. “All of Apple’s products depend on technology engineered and built here in the United States, and we’ll continue to deepen our investments in the U.S. economy because we have an unshakable belief in America’s future.”
The investment is part of a commitment Apple made in 2021 to invest $430 billion in the U.S. economy over five years.
The company said it is on track to meet its target through direct spend with American suppliers, data center investments, capital expenditures in the U.S., and other domestic spend.
Apple has collaborated with Broadcom for years, with the company providing important chips for devices like the AirPort and iPhone 5S.
It already supports more than 1,100 jobs in Broadcom's Fort Collins FBAR filter manufacturing facility.
The partnership is expected to see continued investment in automation projects and training programs for technicians and engineers.
