TAIPEI – Today Foxconn announced plans to build a factory in southeastern Wisconsin. The multi-billion dollar facility will produce flat-screen displays, according to published reports.

The factory is part of a $10 billion investment that is expected to create 3,000 jobs over four years.

Wisconsin officials reportedly said the state would consider legislative perks to attract the firm.

“The senator has said that if a bill is necessary to help facilitate a Foxconn location in Wisconsin, he is hopeful it will take the form of bipartisan legislation that is tackled after the budget is passed,” a spokesperson for Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald said.

“We are exploring potential investments that would represent a major expansion of our current US operations,” Foxconn said in a statement. “We are engaged in discussions with officials at various levels of government regarding our ongoing plans to significantly increase our investments in the US.”
