Foxconn, Racine County officials to announce site for $10 billion campus tomorrow

Foxconn and Racine County leaders tomorrow will announce the location for the $10 billion manufacturing campus that the Taiwanese tech company is planning on building, according to an event invite.

The invite says Foxconn’s announcement will “transform Racine County’s economic landscape” and make Wisconsin the electronics manufacturing capital of North America.

The announcement will take place at the SC Johnson iMET Center in Sturtevant.

Gov. Scott Walker last month signed into law a $3 billion incentive package for the company, which says it could create 13,000 jobs in the coming years.

Foxconn has also posted at least 19 positions at the job search website Indeed, hiring for positions like a sourcing specialist, payroll coordinator, HR manager, production supervisor and some engineering roles. The company’s also hiring a recruiter.

The company pitches the jobs as putting people in a “path of limitless opportunities” by working at a state-of-the-art facility that will be “part of a robust electronics ecosystem we will be creating in the country.”
