Apple Supplier Foxconn to Hire 15,000 More Workers

The Taiwan-based company has announced it wants to bring in more engineers and other professionals.

Their recent announcement has arisen in a push to expand further beyond its roots as a parts supplier.

The company will look to pick up engineers and other qualified talent to work in areas such as telecommunications, ecommerce, bio technology, automation, and software and hardware development.

Foxconn currently employs around 46,000 workers in Taiwan and more than 1 million in China.

Foxconn has earned a great deal of its business as a supplier for Apple, yet the company has been trying to move beyond that somewhat limited role. In the last year alone, Foxconn unveiled deals to create Firefox phones and tablets for Mozilla, develop and make smartphones for Blackberry, and build a plant in the US to create robotic equipment.
