Earlier this year it was reported that Pegatron had landed a contract to manufacturer half of Apple's iPhone 6 orders. It's believed that the new factory and a hiring push was part of an effort by the company to win a contract to manufacture the phone.
The Commercial Times said that production would ramp up in the second quarter but didn't offer any specifics on a release date or how many units will be produced by the company.
Foxconn would likely be the other primary manufacturer of the iPhone 6.
