Foxconn starts US production of servers and network gear

Plant built during Trump presidency amid pressure on companies to create jobs

TAIPEI -- Foxconn, the world's largest contract electronics manufacturer, has begun making servers and other 5G networking gear for a handful of clients, including Cisco, at its manufacturing complex in the U.S. state of Wisconsin, according to multiple sources familiar with the matter.

The move marks the iPhone assembler's first significant production -- albeit small in scale for now -- at the factory, which broke ground during the Trump administration as part of the former president's call to bring more manufacturing jobs to the U.S.
