Foxconn is moving forward with all aspects of our plans to create 13,000 jobs and to invest US$10 billion to build our state-of-the-art Wisconn Valley Science and Technology Park in Wisconsin, which will be completed around 2025. Foxconn is fully committed to this significant investment and to meeting all contractual obligations with the relevant government agencies.
Foxconn’s global investment strategy has always been guided by the overall business growth and development goals of our company as well as the needs of our customers. Against this backdrop, we are adopting a phased approach with the construction of facilities that will be part of our Wisconsin campus, to ensure that we continue to meet current and projected demand for advanced LCD panels. In the first phase of the project, we will be harnessing the latest generation advanced TFT-LCD manufacturing technology in our Wisconsin campus to produce LCD panels which will be used in a wide range of applications that impact consumers’ daily lives, from the latest generation televisions to self-driving cars, notebooks and monitors, and in the fields of education, entertainment, healthcare, advanced manufacturing systems, office automation, interactive retail, and safety, among many others.
The campus will also include facilities for back-end packaging of liquid crystal display modules, molding and tool and die processes involved in the production of high-precision housing and frames for display modules, and final assembly for end-products.
In addition to being a flag-bearer for advanced, intelligent manufacturing, Foxconn’s Wisconn Valley Science and Technology Park will also serve as the foundation for the robust AI 8K+5G ecosystem that Foxconn is building in Wisconsin and in the United States, and promote research and development in advanced Internet-related technologies and next-generation hardware and solutions as part of that ecosystem.
We will announce more details on the Wisconn Valley Science and Technology Park in the coming months.
