Hon Hai Precision Industry Co Ltd (which trades as Foxconn Technology Group, but is generally referred to as Foxconn) is a Taiwan-based electronics contract manufacturing company that is headquartered in Tucheng, New Taipei, Taiwan. The company is one of the largest providers of electronics manufacturing services and information technology in the world. Foxconn was founded by Tai-Ming “Terry” Gou in 1974, and was listed in June 1991.
One of Foxconn's most important milestones occurred in 2001 when Intel selected the company to manufacture its Intel-branded motherboards instead of Asus. Since then, the company has gone on to gain major contracts with notable companies including (but not limited to): Apple Computers, Inc (sales contract started 7 December 1999); International Business Machines Corporation (IBM) (sales contract started 7 July 2008); Microsoft Corporation (sales contract started 27 October 2009 - "onwards for 5 years, contract renewal for 1 year will be initiated by Microsoft 120 days before expiry"); Sony Corporation (sales contract started 26 January 2010).
Foxconn’s first manufacturing facility in China opened in Longhua Tou, Shenzhen, in 1988. The majority of Foxconn's factories are located in Asia, though the company does have facilities in Brazil, Europe, India, and Mexico, and other facilities that pick-and-pack parts for faster delivery to customers in countries such as Australia.
