Foxconn Technology Group on Tuesday named 37 companies that will work as subcontractors on construction of the first building at Foxconn’s manufacturing campus in Mount Pleasant.
The firms will handle work from steel erection to caulking on a 120,000-square-foot structure Foxconn is calling the Multipurpose Building. Construction is expected to begin next month and be completed late this year.
