Rep. Tittl supports Foxconn’s $10 billion investment in Wisconsin
Madison: Representative Paul Tittl (R-Manitowoc) is pleased to see Wisconsin’s efforts at job creation pay off as Foxconn Technology Group has announced plans for a $10 billion investment in the state. According to an announcement at the White House on Wednesday afternoon, Foxconn plans to invest $10 billion by 2020 to build a world-class manufacturing plant in Southeastern Wisconsin.
“The state of Wisconsin is a great place to live and work, and global leaders recognize that fact,” said Tittl. “I am excited for the opportunities Foxconn will bring to Wisconsin’s job market and economy.”
The new facility will manufacture liquid crystal display (LCD) screens for use in everything from office and healthcare settings to aircraft and self-driving cars. Foxconn is the world’s largest electronics manufacturing services provider.
“This is state of the art technology coming right here to Wisconsin,” Tittl said. “The effects on our state could be transformational.”
This move will create 13,000 new jobs in the state. It will also be the largest new green field investment made by a foreign-based company in U.S. history.
Foxconn Founder and CEO Terry Gou made the announcement at the White House today. He was joined by President Donald J. Trump and Governor Scott Walker.
“I am honored that Foxconn and CEO Terry Gou chose our state for this expansion, and I am encouraged to see new opportunities for Wisconsin job seekers and their families,” said Tittl.
