Foxconn is on a hiring spree in Zhengzhou, the place where iPhones are made

Foxconn is on a hiring spree in Zhengzhou, the place where iPhones are made
Foxconn, the world’s largest electronics manufacturing plant, known for manufacturing Apple devices, the Kindle, and major gaming consoles, has gone on a shopping spree for its Zhengzhou facility in China. The Foxconn Zhengzhou plant happens to be the one where the Apple iPhone is manufactured in huge quantities. It is also the Foxconn factory Apple's chief executive Tim Cook visited last year.

The hiring spree at Zhengzhou has started at the end of March. Interestingly, analysts say those recruitments happen exactly in the integrated digital product business group responsible for Apple smartphones. Speculations mount that this is just in time to train enough workers for a huge ramp up in production expected to happen around the second half of the year.

Apple is rumored to be preparing its next generation iPhone and another, affordable device. First units of the two devices are rumored to start shipping back to Apple in the second quarter of the year.
