About Foxconn

Hon Hai Precision Industry Co., Ltd. (trading as Foxconn) is a Taiwanese multinational electronics manufacturing company headquartered in Tucheng, New Taipei, Taiwan. It is the world's largest maker of electronic components. Foxconn is primarily an original design manufacturer, and its clients include major American, European and Japanese electronics and information technology companies. Notable products which the company manufactures include the iPad, iPhone, iPod, Kindle, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360. Foxconn has been involved in several controversies, most relating to how it manages employees in China, where it is the largest private-sector employer. In 2012, Apple hired the Fair Labor Association to conduct an audit of working conditions at Foxconn. Hon Hai Precision Industry Co., Ltd. was founded in 1974 as a manufacturer of electrical components (notably electrical connectors for computer components, which found use in the Atari 2600).
