The smartphone maker Huawei already employs hundreds of thousands of workers around the world, but the tech giant recently built a new campus in China to make room for even more employees, CNBC reports.

Huawei’s massive campus, dubbed “Ox Horn,” is located in southern China. The Ox Horn campus is divided into 12 “towns,” each designed to mimic a different major European city, CNBC reports. The campus has a lake, its own tram system, and enough room to accommodate up to 25,000 employees.

Although Huawei is known for being incredibly secretive, reporters were given access to the new campus in China for the first time earlier this year.

The company is little-known in the US, however, because its products aren’t sold there. There are several high-powered US officials who have said Huawei’s phones and tech could be used for Chinese government-sponsored spying, and have made it hard for the company to bring its products to the US.

Despite the crackdown over national security concerns in the US, Huawei brought in $107 billion in sales last year. Huawei’s 2018 sales were up almost 20% from 2017, company growth that shows why Huawei might need room for more employees on a new campus.
