Foxconn Selects Milwaukee Company As Master Planner

Foxconn Technology Group has chosen a Milwaukee firm as the master planner for its Wisconn Valley Science and Technology Park in Mt. Pleasant.

The Taiwan-based electronics giant said it chose Hammes Company to be the lead developer on the $10 billion project that will house a display-screen factory on a campus spread over 2,900 acres not far from the Illinois border. Foxconn could qualify for up to $4.5 billion in state and local taxpayer incentives if it employs 13,000 workers as envisioned.

Louis Woo, special assistant to Foxconn founder and CEO Terry Gou, said in a released statement that Foxconn was pleased to appoint Hammes to the project, which will “change the face of advanced manufacturing in Wisconsin.”

“Hammes Company, with its deep roots in Wisconsin and understanding of the state’s unique competitive advantages as an investment location, is an ideal partner for Foxconn in realizing many aspects of our vision for this important project and our ‘Wisconsin First’ commitment to contribute to the state’s attractiveness as a global high-tech hub,” Woo said.
