Foxconn Will Continue Production in China

Foxconn Will Continue Production in China - iPhone's main manufacture, Foxconn , was reported to have gotten the green light on Monday (02/10/2020), to reopen its two main factories in China.

Earlier Foxconn decided to temporarily close down its factory operations to avoid spreading the Corona virus.

Reporting from Reuters on Tuesday (02/11/2020), Foxconn received approval to continue operations at factories in Zhengzhou and Shenzhen. A source said that so far only 10 percent of Foxconn's workforce had returned to work.

The two factories are the production sites of the iPhone. Production delays caused by temporary closure are expected to affect product shipments to the global market.

Foxconn is the largest electronics manufacturer in the world. In addition to the iPhone, other products manufactured include Nokia, Xiaomi and iPad devices.

"Due to policy issues and reasons for commercial sensitivity, we do not comment on our specific production initiatives," Foxcon said in a statement.

As many as 16,000 Foxconn employees in Zhengzhou, or 10 percent of the total, returned to work on Monday. While in Shenzhen approximately 20 thousand or 10 percent of workers returned after the Lunar New Year holiday.

"The Shenzhen factory has told employees to return to work tomorrow. Work there will continue in an orderly and orderly manner, but big challenges remain after opening the factory due to the situation (the Corona virus spread)," said a source.

Before it was finally decided to resume production at its factories, Foxconn had time to extend employee vacation time to avoid the spread of the Corona virus.
