Foxconn Says Wisconsin Factory Will be Operational in 2020
Construction Will Begin Later This Year
MADISON, Wis. – Foxconn Technology Group says its manufacturing facility in Wisconsin will be producing liquid crystal display screens by the end of 2020, with construction starting later this year.
The news Monday comes after worldwide electronics manufacturing leader sent mixed signals earlier this year about whether it planned to suspend work in Wisconsin.
The Taiwan-based Foxconn in February recommitted to building what is known as a Generation 6 factory, which typically makes display screens for smaller devices like cellphones, tablets and televisions.
Foxconn on Monday announced dates for moving ahead with that project, including seeking bids in the coming weeks for utilities and construction work at the factory and related buildings.
The factory will be a part of a massive Foxconn campus located near Racine, close to the Wisconsin border with Illinois.
