Apple supplier Hon Hai Precision Industry, better known as Foxconn Technology Group, is considering building a U.S. factory in Wisconsin, according to the Associated Press. Quoting unnamed “sources,” the article says that Wisconsin officials and company execs are in discussions about the plant.
Michigan remains in the mix as a possible location due to the proximity of the automotive industry. The AP doesn’t specify whether the discussions involve Foxconn’s proposed smartphone panel plant, which would supply Apple among others, or the proposed large-format display panel plant with Sharp. Or the discussions could involve both projects.
