According to a new report, Apple is planning to open a research and development center in Cambridge, England in the coming weeks.
The report from Business Weekly mentions that it will be located at 90 Hills Road at a premium space, which is also surrounded by offices from other big technology companies such as Microsoft and Sony.
The report mentioned Apple plans to start the research center with a work force of 20 employees, and plans to grow it to 40 in the coming months.
“Iconic global technology company Apple is set to open its first office in Cambridge, the UK’s innovation capital, in the next few weeks.” according to Business Weekly report. “The Californian-based business is believed to have identified 90 Hills Road for its Cambridge city centre offices and R & D function. With Grade A office space at a premium in Cambridge, the US giant would probably start with around 20 staff but have capacity to gear up to as many as 40 in that space.”
The UK is also said to be working hard from the past 25 years to convince the Cupertino giant to open an office in England. Apple has research and development offices in several countries, such as China, Taiwan and many more.
