Foxconn and Pegatron, two major Apple OEMs, increase production capacity in South Asian countries- Hong Kong unwire.hk

At the end of last year, it was reported that Apple asked suppliers to cooperate and accelerate the transfer of some production lines including iPhone and other products from China to other countries in order to mitigate geopolitical and economic risks. Liu Yangwei, chairman of contract manufacturer Foxconn, attended a company event a few days ago and said that the group will continue to expand in China, the United States and Southeast Asia, and it is expected that the efforts will bear fruit this year.

Foxconn’s competitor, Pegatron, will also respond to Apple’s call. This year, it will invest 300 million to 350 million US dollars to expand the production capacity of its Southeast Asian factories and Mexican auto parts production lines. In addition to producing products for Apple, Pegatron is also a supplier of electric car manufacturer Tesla. Pegatron currently has production lines in Vietnam and Indonesia, but has not yet assembled Apple products there. Reports indicate that Pegatron will increase production capacity in both places this year.

Although China is still the main force for iPhone production, Foxconn and Pegatron currently have factories in India that produce iPhones for Apple, and the number continues to increase. Vietnam is temporarily one of the production bases for AirPods and other products, and will expand the production line in Southeast Asia Foxconn did not specify which country it plans to expand this year.
