Foxconn Hiring Additional 100,000 Employees For Zhengzhou iPhone ManufacturingJanuary 6, 2012 | Print | Comments | Category: Business, Gadgets & Electronics, Telecom & Wireless
Foxconn, the original equipment manufacturer for Apple products, is reportedly expanding its manufacturing capacity in 2012, aiming to increase production for iPhones and iPads to meet the ever-growing market demand.
According to reports in Chinese local media, Foxconn is cooperating with the municipal government of Zhengzhou, capital of Henan province, to double the number of its employees in the local plant. The Zhengzhou plant is Foxconn's new factory which began production on August 2, 2011, as the Taiwanese high-tech giant has begun moving its factory production to inland China. It currently has about 100,000 employees, which means an additional 100,000 jobs will be provided to job-seekers.
In 2011, Foxconn reportedly invested USD1.1 billion in the new Zhengzhou plant. On the completion of the new recruitment, the production capacity of this plant will be greatly increased and it is expected to become the world's largest smartphone manufacturing base.
Foxconn's Zhengzhou plant currently can make about 200,000 iPhones daily, and the scale may be doubled as the result of the new recruitment.
