Foxconn, one of the world’s largest electronics manufacturers, unveiled plans Wednesday to build a $10 billion factory in southeastern Wisconsin.

The new facility, which will make flat-screen displays, will be located in the congressional district of House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.).

The move by Foxconn to open its first major factory in the United States is a break with global manufacturing trends over the past 30 years. Foxconn builds electronic gadgets for nearly every major technology company, including Apple, Google and Amazon.com.

Governor Scott Walker, said the investment would create 13,000 jobs, with an average pay of $53,000 plus benefits. But the company said that it would be hiring 3,000 workers over four years. It added that it could eventually hire more but did not provide further details.

The governor also said his state would offer $3 billion in economic incentives to seal the deal. (article excerpt pulled from The Washington Post, https://www.washingtonpost.com, July 26,2017. By Danielle Paquette, Todd C. Frankel and Hamza Shaban.)
