Google is continuing to expand beyond its home in the San Francisco Bay Area. Sundar Pichai, CEO of Google and Alphabet, said Wednesday the company will invest more than $10 billion in offices and data centers across the US in 2020. From a report: “These investments will create thousands of jobs — including roles within Google, construction jobs in data centers and renewable energy facilities, and opportunities in local businesses in surrounding towns and communities,” Pichai said in a blog post. The search giant, which already has a presence in 26 states, said its new investments will be focused in 11 states: Colorado, Georgia, Massachusetts, Nebraska, New York, Oklahoma, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas, Washington and California. This includes opening Google’s new Hudson Square campus in New York City, which the company says gives it the ability to double its local workforce by 2028. Google also said its opening a new Google Operations Center in Mississippi to improve customer support for its users and partners.
