Google invests more than $50 million in Iowa

COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa (KCCI) — Google will invest more than $50 million in Iowa this year to create more jobs.

Google said it plans to invest about $9.5 billion in offices and data centers to create at least $12,000 new jobs across the country.

Google has been in Iowa since 2009 when it built a data center in Council Bluffs.

To date, the center has created jobs for more than 900 people.

“Google’s new $50 million investment announced today underscores their commitment to our Council Bluffs community,” said Council Bluffs Mayor Matt Walsh. “Building on the $5 billion already invested in Council Bluffs data center facilities, this new investment will continue to have a wave of economic impact across the state.”
