According to a Publication of El Economista, the Foxconn is in the planning stages for a new plant in Mexico. The company already has a total of five different factories in the country, but is responsible for the production of TVs and servers.
Thus, the construction of a new plant will be specifically aimed at iPhone. The interesting thing is that the Apple does not seem to be involved in this new project and the decision starts entirely from Foxconn.
At the same time, Pegatron is reportedly considering a similar move.
The same Apple seeks to reduce its dependence on China, especially after the US trade embargo on China.
The Cupertino-based company has long been considered a potential target for the Beijing government if the government wants retaliation from an American company for sanctions faced by the Huawei and the TikTok from the USA.
