Tim Cook visited Apple’s Irish facilities today, where he addressed staff and shared a couple of thoughts about Apple’s future plans. He also had a private meeting with Taoiseach Enda Kenny, reports the Silicon Republic (via MacRumors).
Apple’s CEO addressed staff this morning at the company’s Cork office, and spoke about the future plans, position on the market, and their rivals in the smartphone and tablet market. His speech was broadcast to the offices on Half Moon Street so staff there could listen to his words.
He also met with Taoiseach Enda Kenny in Cork, who visited the Hollyhill plant and saw the recently added extension. Taioseach Enda Kenny dismissed any allegations of sweetheart deals between the government and Apple or any multinational companies.
Apple currently employs at least 4,000 people in Cork, the company’s European headquarters from where employees oversee the company’s supply chain across Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
