New U.S. Address in Foxconn's Future? Don't Bet on it

November 9, 2012

With unemployment close to 8 percent, you can understand why this headline would grab peoples' attention. A story in Digitimes reports that Foxconn is scouting prospective sites in the United States for future manufacturing plants.

I was skeptical about this story -- which talks about production of LCD TVs, not iPhones -- and that might have been the end of it.

But maybe it's not quite as crazy as it seems. A spokeswoman for Foxconn told me in an e-mail that the company "already has multiple facilities based in the U.S."

“I am pretty passionate about the value of the football selling season,” Doug Schatz, vice president of electronics merchandising for the Nationwide Marketing Group, says. He creates a yearly merchandising “playbook” for members that addresses football season sales strategies retailers can also use during the crucial fourth quarter and into January, leading up to the Super Bowl.
