At a glance shows the evident difference in size of these new facilities with respect to the megafactoría, whose budget was valued at 1,000 million dollars, which the company had projected in the state of Nevada, and whose work never really got started. When the company awarded the contract for the works received the first unpaid and had to be stopped the works, the only thing that was done was the initial movement of land, so that the construction as such never came to begin with.
today the company has confirmed that the project of the factory was really a error, which must not have sat too well with the authorities of Nevada, that will granted a huge loan of 300 million dollars precisely to the construction of such a factory. And you more than likely will not be built in the short or medium term.
