Wisconsin Wins $10 Billion Foxconn Investment

It's estimated that this project will add $51 billion to Wisconsin's gross domestic product over 15 years, an economic impact of $18 returned for every $1 invested by the state.

Why Wisconsin?

While other states aggressively competed for the Foxconn project, and some offered larger incentives, Foxconn Chairman Terry Gou said the company chose Wisconsin in large part because of the commitment from Governor Walker and other state officials. Gou added that Wisconsin’s strong manufacturing legacy also was a key factor in the company’s decision.

“Wisconsin has a rich manufacturing history in industrial automation, healthcare and more, and a strong talent pool of engineers, technicians and craftsmen who are the backbone of America,” he said. “We are looking forward to building on that history and tapping into that pool.”
