Counties and potential suppliers around the state are eager to benefit from the Foxconn Technology Group before its manufacturing plant in Racine County is even up and running. According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Foxconn estimates that assembly work that is done in Wisconsin could generate over billions of dollars in sales next year. Door County Economic Development Corporation Executive Director Caleb Frostman says he believes area manufacturers would be a natural option for Foxconn in the future.
Frostman says local manufacturers are being proactive to find potential work in the future through Foxconn, even though many are doing everything they can to keep up with their current one, two and three-year pipelines. Foxconn believes it will generate around $7 billion in annual revenue when the Racine County plant is built, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
