It has been difficult for Foxconn Technology Group to operate in Wisconsin because the firm doesn’t have its usual freedom to alter plans as economic conditions change, a key executive says in a video circulating in the firm’s home country, Taiwan.
“Foxconn has never been operating in such a fashion before,” Louis Woo, special assistant to company founder Terry Gou, said of the firm’s activities in Wisconsin. “Now we are almost like living in a glass fishbowl, and we are the only goldfish inside that bowl.”
Foxconn is one of the largest electronics manufacturers in the world, so it’s a little surprising that a handful of articles from the business press investigating whether the company will actually build the LCD factory it’s contractually obligated to build counts as “living in a fishbowl,” especially after it kicked the project off with President Trump and Terry Gou literally holding gold-plated shovels.
