Statement: Foxconn Groundbreaking Event

June 28, 2018

Speaker Robin Vos (R-Rochester) released the following statement after the official groundbreaking of the Foxconn manufacturing campus in Mount Pleasant.

“It’s an incredible day for Racine County and Wisconsin. Today Foxconn officially joins a long and successful tradition of manufacturing in our state from heavy machinery and large ships to paper and lip balm. Racine County alone has more than 350 manufacturing companies and will soon be home to the largest manufacturing campus in the world.

“I’m proud that Racine County is the center of Wisconn Valley. It’s a testament to our strong business climate and amazing workers. Foxconn is projected to add $51 billion to the state’s GDP with its tens of thousands of new careers. I look forward to seeing the transformational project come to fruition and having it pay off for the entire state.”
