Foxconn shifts Wisconsin plan after Trump intervenes

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Foxconn Technology Group says that after its chairman spoke with President Donald Trump the Taiwanese company plans to proceed with plans to construct a plant in Wisconsin that will make screens that can be used for small electronic devices.

The news today comes after a week of confusion about Foxconn’s plans in Wisconsin. The company had said last year that it was planning to build such a facility in Wisconsin, but comments by a Foxconn official this week that it was not building a factory in the state cast the future of the project in doubt.

Foxconn says that after productive discussions with the White House, and a personal conversation between Trump and Foxconn chairman Terry Gou, it plans to proceed with the smaller manufacturing facility.

Foxconn says it will be an advanced manufacturing facility and the hub of its project in Wisconsin.
