Foxconn considers expanded U.S. manufacturing

Apple contract manufacturer Foxconn is looking to expand its manufacturing operations in the U.S. as customers request more American-made products, Bloomberg reports. “We are looking at doing more manufacturing in the U.S. because, in general, customers want more to be done there,” Foxconn spokesman Louis Woo said. Currently, the Taipei-based Foxconn has factories in California and Texas that make partially-assembled products, such as servers. Almost certainly related is today’s news from Apple CEO Tim Cook that Apple plans on investing more than $100M in expanding U.S. production. Further specifics of Foxconn’s plans are unknown at this time.
