Foxconn will build a plant for the production of displays in the U.S.
Taiwan Foxconn, a major collector of Apple products and other brands, is developing a plan to build a U.S. plant to produce large-size displays. On this Sunday, told reporters Foxconn head Terry Gou. Two days earlier, reporters learned of the intention to run Apple ‘s own payment system .
In the next few years, a key focus of our activities in the United States will be the automation, software and technological innovation, – said Mr. Gow.
Foxconn is looking for new ways to develop due to slowing revenues from contract manufacturing. Against this backdrop, the company decided to do software development, the provision of telecommunications services, as well as the sale of mobile accessories under its own brand, says the American newspaper The Wall Street Journal.
In November last year, Foxconn said about wanting to invest 40 million dollars in the construction of production facilities and research centers throughout the state of Pennsylvania.
It is noteworthy that the proposed plant will produce liquid crystal displays with a diagonal of 60 inches. Gou said that to date, there are problems with the transportation of large TV panels from Asia to the United States.
We will continue to invest in displays that are an important component for various products, including smartphones, tablets, and televisions – said Gow.
It is worth noting that Foxconn also produces displays for the U.S. carmaker Tesla Motor plans and large projects with Audi and BMW.
To date, Foxconn has manufacturing facilities in more than 10 countries, including China, Vietnam, Turkey, Brazil, Mexico and Hungary. In an attempt to protect themselves from the risks associated with rising labor costs in the coming years, the company plans to turn Indonesia into a key production site.
It is likely that the new displays will be used in smart TVs Apple, which will replace the set top boxes Apple TV. Observers believe that if Apple and decided to launch iTV (as some sources call the TV brand Apple), it would have stopped their choice at the local factory. According to rumors, this TV will be presented this spring.
Apple gradually increasing its production in the United States. The company started to collect Mac Pro in Austin (Texas), and soon plans to launch in Arizona plant to produce sapphire glass, which can be used in iWatch and iPhone with a large screen . In a recent interview with ABC television Apple CEO Tim Cook said that the U.S. production company gives a sense of pride, but declined to comment on rumors about iTV and iWatch.
