Apple opens European test center in Cork

Apple is opening a new European engineering and testing facility at its Cork campus.

The company says it has invested tens of millions of euros to transform an old warehouse, acquired in 2020, into a state-of-the-art facility.

A team of engineers and technicians will be stationed on site using high-tech equipment such as CT scanners and electron microscopes to test and analyze Apple products across Europe.

Apple has kept the original warehouse structure of the building, but the interior has been redesigned with most of the 300-strong team that worked on the local construction of the Cork campus.

The company says the new test facility is the first of its kind in Europe.

“The opening of this new facility demonstrates Apple’s continued investment in advancing the skills and capabilities at Cork, adding new roles and enhanced facilities across various business units and teams,” according to a statement from Apple.

The company currently employs around 6,000 people in Cork.
