ADDITIONAL INVESTMENT: Google Expands In Iowa
On the same day Facebook announced a major investment in central Iowa, another tech giant made a similar announcement in western Iowa.
Google says it will invest an additional $400 million in their data center in Council Bluffs. The facility houses computer systems that support services like Google search, G-Mail and Google maps.
With Tuesday’s announcement the company has invested over $1.5 million in the state and will receive $7 million in tax refunds for the most recent expansion.
The project isn’t expected to add new jobs.
