Apple reportedly investing $13 million in the Elk Grove campus, opening up new jobs

Apple is set to invest at least $13 million in expanding its Elk Grove campus, according to a report. Refurbishment of the Sacramento-based workplace is believed to open up the possibility of thousands of new jobs being created. According to said report, Apple is planning to convert a 134,000 square-foot warehouse and kit the building out for logistics operations.

An additional 1,450 parking spaces have been added to the campus, alongside medical and dental facilities for employees. A massage room, exercise suite and a yoga studio will also reportedly be added. As noted by the Sacramento Business Journal:

"The Elk Grove site handles warehousing and distribution as well as a customer-support call center. Some reports have said Elk Grove delivers iPhone repair and logistics. The site also has the electrical capacity to support a major data center, so it could be a co-location center for iTunes. The Elk Grove plant has its own electrical substation from the Sacramento Municipal Utility District."

It'll be a positive move by the company to open up doors to employment, as well as investing in the Elk Grove location, which has seen its workforce expand and retract since 1992.
