MOUNT PLEASANT, WI — Foxconn has awarded $31 million in new construction contracts for the company’s Mount Pleasant electronics manufacturing plant. Company officials say this week’s contract announcement brings the total value of contracts awarded for work at the park to about $350 million.
“Foxconn is pleased to be taking another step forward at the Wisconn Valley Science and Technology Park with this most recent round of bid awards,” said Foxconn Technology Group in a news release. “With roof installation well underway heading into the winter season, we’re thrilled to be continuing our progress and maintaining our aggressive construction schedule.”
The awards come as Foxconn nears completion of roof installation at the nearly 1 million square-foot manufacturing facility in Mount Pleasant. Announced in early October, roof installation encompasses the installation of approximately 16,000 cubic yards of concrete onto a metal deck. Installation has been overseen by three roofing crews in order to meet an aggressive construction schedule.
