Apple is moving its iTunes business to Ireland

iTunes S.à r.l., Apple’s Luxembourg holding company,  will complete its merger with Apple Distribution International in Cork, Ireland, on Sept. 25, and will relocate its business from Luxembourg to Cork in early 2017. The distribution center facilitates operations for the call center, sales, manufacturing, service and OEM management for products sold in the EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) region.

Apple has been operating in Ireland since 1980 and now employs nearly 6,000 people. As the company continues to expand its operations in Cork, it’s moving our iTunes business there and will support content stores for more than 100 countries from the Apple campus at Hollyhill.
