Foxconn Considers Establishing Manufacturing Plants in the U.S.?
Foxconn is reportedly planning to establish manufacturing plants in the U.S. and is conducting evaluations of cities such as Detroit and Los Angeles, reports DigiTimes.
Since the manufacturing of Apple's products is rather complicated, the market watchers expect the rumored plants to focus on LCD TV production, which can be highly automated and easier.
Meanwhile, Foxconn chairman Terry Guo, at a recent public event, noted that the company is planning a training program for US-based engineers, bringing them to Taiwan or China to take part in the processes of product design and manufacturing.
Foxconn is reportedly in discussions with MIT about that program.
