A SpaceX facility could be built across Tesla Gigafactory Texas. Hints that SpaceX was looking for a dedicated factory in Austin emerged last month when the company posted a Starlink-related job based in the area.
A few sources told the Austin Business Journal that a possible SpaceX facility would be built opposite Giga Texas. However, permits and other official documents for a SpaceX factory in eastern Travis County have not been filed with the city yet.
In March, SpaceX posted a job for an Automation & Controls Engineer, working to make Starlink a mass-market product. The job listing has been taken down, but an excerpt of the post stated the following:
“To keep up with global demand, SpaceX is breaking ground on a new, state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Austin, TX. The Automation & Controls Engineer will play a key role as we strive to manufacture millions of consumer facing devices that we ship directly to customers (Starlink dishes, Wi-Fi routers, mounting hardware, etc.)
