 Foxconn pumping out a massive 70% of iPhones production

Recently, Foxconn worked out an agreement with Sharp Corp to obtain details for making Apple’s iPhone new touch display, but apparently that wasn’t enough as a report from micgadet.com indicated that Foxconn was determined to take over the iPhone manufacturing industry totally.

According to micgadget.com, 70 percent of the production for the iPhone is allocated to Foxconn’s Zhengzhou plant in China.  Previous reports revealed that the plant was producing 200,000 iPhones a day, but according the reps from the plant they intend to up the ante by 100 percent!  That’s an astonishing 400,000 iPhones per day! 

Furthermore, how does Foxconn increase the yield of iPhone production without jeopardizing the health of current employees or increase the amount of workers?  That remains to be seen, but the cellphone exports of the Henan province—the Zhengzhou plant’s location—accounts for 52.7 percent of the total exports.  Thus, Henan seems convinced that iPhones and other cell phones is the cash cow of the region.

With the addition of information regarding the in-cell touch display from Sharp, Foxconn will surely dominate just about every aspect of current as well as future iPhones. 

This is great business for Foxconn, but how will Apple respond should anything go wrong at Foxconn’s Zhengzhou plant?  For instance, how will Apple meet demands if the Foxconn plant suddenly ignites on fire?  This is strictly theoretical, and of course Foxconn undoubtedly has many safety measures to keep their iPhone churning behemoth humming smoothly. 

As with any good business practice, Apple shouldn’t put all their eggs in one basket, especially one of Apple’s flagship products.
