On Sept. 12, the town of Mount Pleasant, Wisconsin, where Foxconn was scheduled to build its largest factory, plans were put in place for a new building: a nine-story lawn to be a data center and Foxconn
In the afternoon, the company took over the plans, Wisconsin Radio stated, to “explore other design areas.”
Instead of Foxconn, it is moving forward with plans for a similar structure: a 260,000-square-foot building that plans to place workspaces and office space.
Creating a fast transition is not the first PORT OF ONEHUNGA for Foxconn, which claimed 20 million square feet of large 10.5-inch LCD generation from the manufacturing plant, President Triumph described it as the “eighth wonder of the world.” Following the previous governor. Scott Walker signed a contract for $ 4.5 billion in additional funding from Foxconn, which they transferred to the factory to a lesser generation 6 of assets. The whole factory was apparently destroyed, but it was reversed after a call from the trumpet.
For some time, Foxconn claimed something called AI 8K + 5G of the ecosystem. A small factory is now being built claiming that it will manufacture a small LCD screen as well as car controls, suppliers, and other equipment. Approximately 1 million square feet, twenty the size of the original plan. The rest of the disputed land taken from the owners of the original factory will now be a type of «mall» investment. according to the company, and Foxconn “provide anchor leases and work to bring more businesses to fill the rest of the space.”
The exception is new homes under the control of Foxconn Industrial Internet, or Fii, a subsidiary of Foxconn, the parent company not covered by the original Wisconsin contract.
A spokesman for the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC) confirmed that Foxconn Industrial Internet is not part of the contract, which needs to be changed and approved by Fii to qualify for scholarships.
Plans for the Fii house were sent to Mount Pleasant and are said to be used as part of the shelves, although a Fii owner named Richard Vincent. as mentioned in Timeline this is just one of the applications among the majority in the construction industry “large, small to large mix”. Meanwhile, Fii has been accused of making coffee kiosks for Briggo and smart home security equipment from the company’s alarm system called Qolsys.
Foxconn is done deviate from the original contract when the factory scale was reduced, it was built. (The contract is clear for the definition of the project, such as the 10.5th generation.) It has also fallen behind the cost and investment of the space required by the company to take out subsidies.
Although not included in the original contract, it appears that Fii has been more involved in the project. In September, Louis Woo, the Foxconn office that represented the company in Wisconsin, resigned. has been replaced by Jay Lee, Professor at the University of Cincinnati and vice president at Fii.
Since then, Foxconn has been holding some “technical information” around Wisconsin, some of which Lee has helped. Conversations point to a way to be more transparent in company secrecy (Woo one compare working under the supervision of the media to “stay in the fish tank”), but the monopoly is still different. Proponents of the Report want to sign non-disclosure contracts, even at a conference at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
Nearly a year ago, Foxconn donated $ 100 million to the University of Wisconsin-Madison for a new technology and research facility. The university has won less than 1 percent PORT OF ONEHUNGA.
This week, however, Foxconn has signed a connection and the University of Illinois, to create an Environmental and Environmental Education Network Center on Urbana-Champaign camps. Under the Foxconn contract, $ 50 million to $ 100 million will be allocated for the project, to develop technology for single-vehicle vehicles and other intelligent equipment. The state of Illinois is different from Wisconsin.
An advocate who attended a technical conference posted on Meetup.com at Foxconn Milwaukee headquarters said Lee was using AI to improve business practices and mocked him for opening an “AI institute”. “for training in the future. staff. “They said: to launch, but it is not clear if they want to be told by anyone because we need to sign this NDA very clearly,” the assistant said. «He told me not to share confidential resources or to take any of the photos and videos. I did not attend a meeting and I did not want to talk about the meeting. »
But since all of this is being done at Fii, it is clear that the Wisconsin contract needs to be reviewed. In fact, before he left, Woo met with Governor Tony Evers and wanted to change the deal to include Foxconn’s new companies, with some changes, according to documents in appear on the document request.
The government also has a reason to review the contract. To say a me Evers’ office requested earlier this year that if the current grants were upheld, Wisconsin taxpayers would pay $ 290,000 for Foxconn’s services.
It is unclear where the review of the contract is. Neither the Evers office nor the WEDC responded to questions about the nature of any of the contract negotiations.
The company has also redistributed its commitment to employ 13,000 people in government and invested $ 10 million. Although the factory is not close to Foxconn, the company has stated that this is only the first step. It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post.
Foxconn did not respond to questions about the contract or Fii about working on the Wisconsin project.
