GOP Governor Kim Reynolds’ Pro-Jobs Policies Score Another Big Win For Iowa

Apple is making a huge investment towards a new data center in Iowa.

On August 24, 2017, Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds and Apple CEO Tim Cook announced that it will build a new $1.375 billion data center in Waukee, which will create “hundreds of new jobs for the people of Iowa.” Apple will also invest $100 million toward a “public improvement fund” for the city of Waukee. Under Governor Reynolds’ common-sense, pro-growth policies, Iowa continues to attract billions in investment and grow jobs.

Apple Inc will build a $1.375 billion data center in Waukee, Iowa, Apple and state officials said on Thursday, with $207.8 million in incentives approved by the Iowa Economic Development Authority and Waukee city council.

Apple will purchase 2,000 acres (8.09 square km) of land in Waukee, about 20 miles (32 km) west of Des Moines, to build two data centers. The company will receive a $19.65 million investment tax credit for creating 50 jobs.

Apple said the project will generate more than 550 jobs in construction and operations, but did not specify how many of those jobs would be long-term positions.

Speaking alongside Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds, Apple Chief Executive Tim Cook said the facility “will create hundreds of jobs for people in Iowa from construction to engineering.”
