Tim Cook is scheduled to attend the opening of Apple’s latest offices in Israel early next week, according to a report from Israeli daily business newspaper Calcalist.

The report says the new offices will be located in Herzliya, Israel, and hold around 800 employees in approximately 180,000 square feet.

There is no info on what exactly the company has planned for the new facility, but Apple has run satellite offices in Israel for a few years following its acquisition of NAND flash technology provider Anobit for a reported $390 million back in 2011 and PrimeSense shortly after. Anobit’s offices are also located in Herzliya.

In addition to visiting the new offices, Cook is reportedly scheduled to meet with government officials including former President Shimon Peres as well as high-profile tech executives in the country. Last year Cook met with Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Cupertino.

The company has another research center in Haifa, Israel that it first started hiring chip experts for in 2012. Calcalist noted today that facility holds several hundred employees in addition to the new offices opening next week in Herzliya.
