State announces process for companies to bid on Foxconn construction work
The state has unveiled a new website – WisconnValley.wi.gov – to offer information and guidance to Wisconsin companies seeking to provide goods and services during the construction phase of the $10 billion Foxconn advanced manufacturing facility in Racine County.
Foxconn recently announced the selection of a lead construction management firm as well as lead engineering consultants for the project, which is expected to begin in less than two months.
Gov. Scott Walker is encouraging companies to visit the new state website to learn more about becoming a subcontractor, supplier, vendor, or professional services provider during the construction phase. “Construction of the Foxconn campus is expected to create more than 16,000 direct and indirect jobs over the next four years, and it’s estimated that more than $5 billion will be spent on construction and equipment from businesses in every region of Wisconsin during that time,” said Walker.
