Are Apple Computers Being Built in Fremont Again?

A tech news site reports that a Fremont plant is listed as a final assembler of Macintosh computers

It’s no secret that Apple once called Fremont its home, manufacturing the original Macintosh computers and other Apple products at a local facility in the 80s and early 90s. But the tech giant may have returned to its Tri-City roots, according to tech reports.

Apple news website 9to5Mac.com reports that the company recently named Quanta Computer USA as a final assembler of Macs, where the computers are put together and packaged for distribution.

One of Quanta’s two U.S. locations is 44350 Nobel Dr. in Fremont; the other is in Tennessee.

9to5Mac.com, however, has images of packaging labels originating in Fremont, indicating that Apple computers are indeed, in some form or fashion, assembled here.

In November, Apple launched its newest iMac models with an “Assembled in the USA” marker on both the packaging and the computers themselves, according to 9to5Mac.com.

Readers of the Mac website reported that quite a few of their new iMacs had originated from the Fremont area.

Give Fremont enough time, they will regulate the business out of town. Can we say Oakland A's?
