Foxconn Technology Invests $30 Million To Expand Its Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, Manufacturing Center

Area Development Online News Desk (11/22/2013)
Taiwan-based computer parts manufacturer Foxconn Technology, and its subsidiary Hon Hai Precision Industry, plan to invest $30 million to expand its Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, production plant.

In addition, the company said it will allocate $10 million for research and development on robotics cooperation with Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh.

Foxconn chairman and founder Terry Guo said the Harrisburg plant will be transformed into a high-tech manufacturing facility for telecommunications equipment and Internet servers, with an estimated 500 employees.

"We'll go from original component R&D through to a complete high-end production chain," Guo said. "However, this is not, as assumed, manufacturing for a specific brand."

The firm said it wants to expand the number of products its makes in America, while not relocating items produced in Taiwan.
