Apple och Foxconn planerar fabrik i USA
Trots besked om att Foxconn inte vill lämna Kina och Asien kommer nu nya uppgifter om att en fabrik kan planeras tillsammans med Apple.
Det är Nikkei som publicerat uppgifterna och det ska röra sig om en högt automatiserad fabrik.
TAIPEI — Key iPhone assembler Hon Hai Precision Industry is mulling a joint investment with Apple topping $7 billion for a highly automated display facility in the U.S., Chairman Terry Gou said Sunday.
”Apple is willing to invest in the facility together because they need the [panels] as well,” Gou told reporters after the company’s annual year-end party in the Nankang district of Taipei. The U.S. production site eventually would create 30,000 to 50,000 jobs, the Taiwanese tycoon said.
The Nikkei Asian Review reported in November that Apple had asked Hon Hai, better known as Foxconn Technology Group, to consider making iPhones in the U.S. NAR also reported this month that Foxconn and Japanese subsidiary Sharp were exploring construction of a U.S. display plant.
