TAIPEI, Taiwan — U.S. President Donald Trump is expected to announce Wednesday that Taiwan tech giant Hon Hai will set up a massive manufacturing facility in Wisconsin, which would mark its first factory in the U.S.
The White House has put an ambiguous “jobs announcement” on its Wednesday schedule for Trump, following rumors that he would announce the new plant’s location soon.
Hon Hai, also known as Foxconn, is the world’s largest contract electronics manufacturer. Headquartered in New Taipei, it’s best known for manufacturing Apple devices.
Trump has previously said he hoped to bring Apple manufacturing to the U.S. to create jobs there as part of his “America first” agenda. While visiting Wisconsin in June, Trump hinted at Hon Hai choosing the state for the factory, saying that Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker would get “a very happy surprise.” [FULL STORY]
