Google Plans $13B in U.S. Facility Investments in 2019

Alphabet Inc’s Google plans to spend more than $13 billion on data centers and offices across the United States this year. The new investment pushes the internet search giant’s presence into 24 total states, including data centers in 13 communities.

Google CEO Sundar Pichai said in a blog post, “Today we’re announcing over $13 billion in investments throughout 2019 in data centers and offices across the U.S., with major expansions in 14 states. These new investments will give us the capacity to hire tens of thousands of employees, and enable the creation of more than 10,000 new construction jobs in Nebraska, Nevada, Ohio, Texas, Oklahoma, South Carolina and Virginia.

Google’s U.S. footprint is growing rapidly. In the last year, it has hired more than 10,000 people in the U.S. and made more than $9 billion in investments. Google’s Pichai notes, “2019 marks the second year in a row we’ll be growing faster outside of the Bay Area than in it.”
