Foxconn expanding iPhone production capabilities for 2012


Foxconn, the company that assembles many of the mobiledevices for Apple, Amazon, Microsoft, and Samsung, is dramatically expandingits factory in Zhengzhou, which currently produces up to 200,000 iPhones a day.When the expansion is complete, the plant would be the largest of its kind inthe world, with 95 production lines capable of outputting a total of 400,000iPhones per day.




It’s not known whether the entire expansion will bededicated to iPhone production – Foxconn prefers to maintain the flexibility tochange product lines quickly in response consumer demand – the Zhengzhou plantis the main iPhone production plant at the moment, and if iPhone demandcontinues to raise it is likely that manufacturing would be centered in thesame plant.




Foxconn has become a true manufacturing behemoth, employing1.2 million people. The expansion of the Zhengzhou plant is expected to allowFoxconn to generate $20 billion in revenue from that plant alone. And it shouldhelp ensure that consumers get their tech toys in sufficient quantities for atleast another couple of years.
