Governor Walker's tweet said the the contracts to 27 subcontractors and suppliers in this phase totals $100 million.
“Today we are seeing more of the Foxconn Bonus throughout Wisconsin,” said Governor Walker in a statement. “It is clear that Foxconn is putting Wisconsin first with its 27 selected in-state subcontractors for Wisconn Valley Science and Technology Park’s first phase of development. It is great to see Wisconsin businesses and working families from all over our state benefiting from this historic investment.”
Foxconn expects to begin construction soon on a $10 billion flat-screen plant in Mount Pleasant.
The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources recently approved four air permits for the manufacturing complex and a request to pull millions of gallons of water daily from Lake Michigan to serve the new plant.
The plant could employ up to 13,000 people. The Taiwan-based electronics giant aims to break ground by the end of May and be operational late next year.
