Back in November, the State of Arizona announced that Apple had chosen the city of Mesa to create a new manufacturing facility and in the process 700 new permanent manufacturing jobs. Some had speculated it could be part of CEO Tim Cook’s plan to bring manufacturing of Macs back to the US (Cook previously stated some parts will come from Arizona), but a supplier later revealed it would be providing equipment for the production of sapphire material at Apple’s new plant. Apple never confirmed what the plant would actually be used for, but we’ve discovered through a new job listing that Apple will indeed use the facility for manufacturing iPhone and iPod components.
Apple is looking for iPod/iPhone Manufacturing Design Engineers for a position based in Mesa, Arizona that will “provide end to end manufacturing and process solutions for key design features” for iPhone and iPod. Specifically, Apple is looking for someone to focus on development of equipment and process setup for surface finishing, glass processing, automation of iPhone/iPod manufacturing, CNC machining, and more.Apple adds that the iPod/iPhone Manufacturing Design Engineer would have “direct frequent communication and collaboration with Apple Industrial Design, Product Design, Manufacturing Design partners and worldwide suppliers.”The company has been hiring for an increasing number of positions at its new Mesa, Arizona facility in recent weeks, including several positions for mechanical supplier quality engineers that also mention iPod and iPhone manufacturing. Apple currently uses the sapphire crystal material in its Touch ID buttons on iPhone and lens covers, but the job listing above seems to indicate there will be more than just sapphire manufactured at the plant.

"My wife and I worked with Alan and other members of The Valley Solutions Team about a year ago when we were moving to Arizona to buy our first home. We searched website after website, but kept coming back to his team website. Thank goodness we did. Alan was awesome to work with, and was very flexible and dependable. While we had to fly in from out of town he was available to us when we needed him. The searching and buying process went very smoothly and we couldn't have been happier. Then, a just a few months ago, we had the pleasure of working with Alan again. We ended up buying our second home here in Scottsdale. Our situation was a bit more difficult as my husband was away more often then not for work. Alan was more then willing to meet with me when our schedule allowed us to do so, and did everything he could to help us purchase our second home while my husband was away. The second time around went just as smooth as the first and we couldn't be more pleased with our new home. Alan was very easy to work with. He responded to e-mails, and phone calls right away and have a vast knowledge about Arizona and the real estate market. They are the best of the best and we wouldn't buy from anyone else, or recommend anyone else to work with. They are just that good!!!"
