May 22, 2020

Apple has awarded $10 million from its Advanced Manufacturing Fund to COPAN Diagnostics. This will allow COPAN Diagnostics to rapidly accelerate its supply of sample collection kits for hospitals across the United States, expanding production from several thousand to more than 1 million kits per week by early July, according to an Apple press release.

As part of this effort, Apple will support COPAN Diagnostics’ expansion to a new, larger facility in Southern California, with advanced equipment that Apple is helping design. This expansion is expected to create more than 50 new jobs.

Apple is sourcing equipment and materials for COPAN Diagnostics, based in Murrieta, CA, from companies across the United States, including equipment Apple is helping design from K2 Kinetics, based in York, PA, and MWES in Waukesha, WI.
