It is really a blissful news to know that Google expects foreign operations outside the US in order to become a significant portion and part of their expansion program . the part of the cash should go for building a high-tech manufacturing facility.

I can see Google benefiting from building a manufacturing facility in the U.S. based on the latest technology, cloud computing, mobile devices and best practices. The company has the financial means, technical experience, connections, and the ability to bring in new talent from universities around the world. If they don't build a facility, the company will miss a major opportunity to create jobs and lead supply chain and manufacturing into the next phase. Applying their advertising skills to the manufacturing supply chain would benefit the electronics industry. It would also benefit Google's ad business to analyze the shortcomings of the electronics manufacturing industry.

@Hailey - Just noticed a typo on my subject - shouid have been "$30B (witha B) versus $300M".  Oh well.


    I'm sure you are right. I was just thinking that the investment in a new facility, as estimated in teh article at $300M, is a small fraction of the assets available for investment and M&A. Would be nice to attract a portion of that.

@Eldredge, i can't imagine that Google's efforts will be completely focused outside of the US...that wouldn't make sense at all.

@Laurie, all good questions...I think that Google, like many high tech companies, is going to be looking at the best way to serve existing customers and attract new ones. That will inform how and where their newest manufacturing efforts will be placed.

If Google is setting aside $30B for foreign investment, the $300M for a state-of-the-art facility seems like a drop in the bucket. Wouldn't it be nice to invest some of that stateside?

Google's U.S. Or Overseas Manufacturing Facility

Should Google build a manufacturing facility in the U.S. or overseas? What type of technology would it run? Who would run it? What type of mobile apps from SAP, Oracle or Microsoft would you use and how would you tie it into the cloud? If you ran the facility, would you contract open time to other manufacturers?
