Personnel are working around the clock to finish Apple's sapphire plant

Work at Apple’s new sapphire production plant in Mesa, Arizona is progressing, with contractors working “around the clock and even on weekends”, according to a new report by AppleInsider. It also says Apple may be expanding into another building already existing on the site. The site says Apple planned to have the facility up and running by February and it may be partially active as work continues. 

Fresh photos of Apple’s Mesa, Ariz., sapphire plant, built in partnership with GT Advanced Technologies, show construction of external fixtures is progressing as planned, while a new rumor claims the site may be expanded to a neighboring building. AppleInsider has received a batch of photos showing recent progress at the Apple-GT Advanced sapphire plant, a large nondescript building in Arizona that looks to be nearly complete. The tipster says construction personnel are working around the clock and even on weekends to get the job done by June. Documents filed with the U.S. International Trade Administration in January revealed Apple’s “go live” target date was sometime in February, meaning the plant may be partially active as construction completes.
