Apple will expand Cork campus and create new jobs

US tech giant Apple will expand its Holyhill campus in Cork to accommodate new and existing employees.

That new four-story building will be able to accommodate 1,300 employees, some of whom will be newly hired, the company said.

Cork City Council is to issue notice on the planning application on Tuesday.

This includes planning an office building, car park and green communal spaces on land adjacent to David McCarthy Road and Nash’s Boren.

It will include bike and scooter storage, electric vehicle charging points and will complement Apple’s existing shuttle service and public transportation on campus.

The facility will run on 100pc renewable energy, Apple said, with solar panels mounted on all new structures and a pedestrian walkway attached to existing buildings.

Apple has been carbon neutral since 2020, she said, and aims to be carbon neutral across its entire supply chain by 2030.

Apple has already invested more than €250m in its Cork campus to accommodate its growing teams.

It is the largest private employer in Cork, with approximately 6,000 employees in the city.

Apple’s vice president of European operations, Cathy Kearney, said the firm will “continue to create new jobs” in the country.

“We have called Cork home for more than 40 years, and are thrilled to accelerate our investment here as we grow our team and expand our campus.
