Hoffman Construction Welcomes Foxconn on its $10 Billion Investment in Wisconsin

August 22, 2017

BLACK RIVER FALLS, Wis.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Hoffman Construction Co., one of the oldest and largest construction firms in Wisconsin, welcomes the world’s largest electronics manufacturing services provider, Foxconn Technology Group, on its announced investment commitment of over $10 Billion to build a new manufacturing facility located in the state of Wisconsin.

“We join our governor, Scott Walker, the Wisconsin Assembly and the people of Wisconsin in welcoming Foxconn,” said James Hoffman, president of the company that bears his name.

“My family started our company here in Wisconsin more than 100 years ago, and Hoffman Construction has played a key role in helping to build our state’s infrastructure and foster commercial development,” he said. “I am confident that Foxconn will benefit from the workforce and infrastructure resources that our business minded state has to offer. This is a great day for Wisconsin.”

Foxconn recently announced plans to build a world-class manufacturing campus in Southeastern Wisconsin to produce state-of-the-art liquid crystal display (LCD) screens. According to the company, Foxconn’s new campus will employ over 13,000 employees, which represents the largest new greenfield investment made by a foreign-based company in U.S. history.

“Like everyone in Wisconsin, I am pleased and proud that Foxconn chose our state for its first North American liquid crystal display plant,” Mr. Hoffman said. “I am also glad to see that the Wisconsin Assembly recognized the importance of the Foxconn development with its vote of support. Of the $10 billion in investment, over $5.5 billion will be for direct Wisconsin construction spending. For Wisconsin, that means jobs – over 20,000 construction jobs – and the opportunity to grow with one of the world’s leading companies and foster other opportunities for our state.”
