Apple celebrates 40th anniversary in Singapore

Apple celebrates 40th anniversary in Singapore

Did you know that Apple has been in Singapore for 40 years? I didn’t do it either.

To celebrate this milestone, the company has released a release detailing some of its history and some of its milestones here in Singapore.

Well, usually this isn’t something I write, but seeing that many of our readers are enthusiastic users of Apple products, I wanted to share this.

Here are some interesting bites:

  • Apple first set up a store here in July 1981
  • It started with 72 employees and the business focused on manufacturing the Apple II.
  • Today, Singapore has more than 3,500 Apple employees from more than 50 countries.
  • And Singapore is now Apple’s operating hub in the Asia Pacific region.
  • Apple also states that it supports more than 55,000 jobs in Singapore

What stood out to me was that Apple was the first company in Singapore to be powered by 100% renewable energy.

The project, which began in 2015, has partnered with Sunseap to install solar panels on more than 800 rooftops in both public buildings and Apple’s own buildings.Together they generate 32 MW solar power.. This is enough to power Apple’s four and three retail sites in Singapore.

It’s also worth noting how Apple’s business in Singapore has changed over the last 40 years. Initially focused on manufacturing, it is now a hub for the region as the economy matures and sophisticates.
