Foxconn subsidiaries to lay off 155 manufacturing, assembly workers in Plainfield

Mason King, Indianapolis Business Journal Multimedia Producer

Two subsidiaries of computer electronics manufacturer Foxconn Technology Group plan to lay off 155 employees at a facility in Plainfield over the next three months.

Q-Edge Corp. and Foxconn/Hon Hai Logistics California LLC notified state officials of the impending layoffs on Wednesday.

The companies are chalking up the layoffs at their facility at 1581 S. Perry Road to “changes in our business and production objectives,” according to the notice. The job losses will affect manufacturing and assembly workers as well as related office staff.

The facility will continue to operate after the layoffs, but the companies did not specify how many employees would remain.

Company officials did not immediately return a call from IBJ seeking clarification.

Taiwan-based Foxconn typically does not comment on specific clients, but it is known that Foxconn supplies parts to Apple and other computer-related manufacturers, such as Intel and Microsoft.
