Foxconn Technology Group will announce in the next two to three days the subcontractors for the start of its planned $10 billion project in Racine County, the company’s second-ranking executive said.
At the same time, Foxconn will start construction in two to three days on the first phase of the project, which will cover 752 acres in Mount Pleasant, Louis Woo said Wednesday afternoon in Milwaukee. He said the first phase will require 500,000 person-hours of work.
“We will let people know in the next couple days who will be the winners (of contracts),” Woo said. “I’m very pleased to let you know that 90 percent of the winners are from the state of Wisconsin.”
