SAN ANTONIO (Texas News Radio) — Apple announced Monday it will be manufacturing its new Mac Pro in Austin.

The California-based company said its components will come from more than a dozen American companies from Arizona, Maine, New Mexico, New York, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas and Vermont.

Apple credited a federal product exclusion it is receiving to make it possible.  The company said the value of American-made components in its newest version of Mac Pro is 2.5 times greater than the previous generation.

“The Mac Pro is Apple’s most powerful computer ever and we’re proud to be building it in Austin. We thank the [Trump] administration for their support enabling this opportunity,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO. “We believe deeply in the power of American innovation. That’s why every Apple product is designed and engineered in the US, and made up of parts from 36 states, supporting 450,000 jobs with US suppliers, and we’re going to continue growing here.”

Apple has produced the Mac Pro in Austin since 2013.
