Officials Say Foxconn Location Will Be Announced Soon

Antigo, WI, United States /

Wisconsin’s economic development director says the exact location for a massive electronics manufacturing plant will be announced soon.
Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation Secretary Mark Hogan told lawmakers Thursday that Foxconn Technology Group’s selection of the 1,000-acre site was “imminent” and should be announced within two weeks. Foxconn is eyeing sites in Kenosha and Racine counties, which are in southeast Wisconsin in between Milwaukee and the Illinois border near Chicago.
Foxconn plans to invest $10 billion on the first liquid crystal display panel manufacturing plant located outside of Asia. It would employ 3,000 initially and up to 13,000 over six years. Hogan says wages for entry-level jobs would be $20 an hour. He says the annual average salary would be nearly $54,000.
