iPhone manufacturer Foxconn may set up plants in the U.S.

Foxconn American Manufacturing Plants

While it’s unlikely that iPhones will have “Made in the U.S.A.” proudly stamped on them anytime soon, that doesn’t mean American tech manufacturing is dead. Unnamed sources have told Digitimes that iPhone manufacturer Foxconn has “plans to establish manufacturing plants in the US and is currently conducting evaluations in cities such as Detroit and Los Angeles.” Although these plants aren’t likely to churn out iPhones, they may assemble LCD TVs and other electronics that can be produced more through automated machines and require less human labor. Digitimes also says that Foxconn may be planning more training courses for American engineers that would give them the opportunity “to learn the Chinese language” as well as “first-hand expereince [sic] in the manufacturing process, and a training that can be helpful after they return to the US.”
