Foxconn Planning a U.S. Plant? [Rumor Mill]

A Foxconn plant would be an interesting development in the tech manufacturing world. But would it make Apple devices? Likely no.

According to Digitimes, Foxconn is considering building a plant in the U.S., but likely not to make Apple devices, but LCD TVs. That’s a pity, but you have to start somewhere I guess. More interesting, I think, is the plan Terry Guo talked about recently to bring U.S. engineers to China and Taiwan to learn Chinese and manufacturing techniques:

Meanwhile, Foxconn chairman Terry Guo, at a recent public event, noted that the company is planning a training program for US-based engineers, bringing them to Taiwan or China to take part in the processes of product design and manufacturing.

Reportedly already in discussions with MIT, this could be a very lucrative career path for engineers thinking about tech manufacturing as a career.

    I can’t see this working. There is such an insignificant worker pool here that is going to work for what they are going to pay. Americans feel factory jobs should be high paying jobs due to YEARS of union-inflated factory wages.

    Sorry, don’t see this working at ALL.
