The new website includes:
  • An overview of the Foxconn project, including details of the project and answers to some frequently asked questions;
  • Details on the Wisconsin Supply Chain Marketplace, which enables companies seeking to do business with Foxconn to register to get connected to the company;
  • Opportunity to sign up to be notified of bidding opportunities as the project progresses under the public construction info signup page; and
  • Construction updates on the project itself, as well as nearby roads and highways.

Along with the launch of the website, state and local partners announced the first resource fair for construction workers on March 29 at Festival Hall in Racine .

At the resource fair, individuals interested in construction work for Foxconn or the surrounding infrastructure development will get information about the opportunities and qualifications associated with the project. Attendees will also have the opportunity to connect with additional resources to assist with becoming fully qualified when opportunities become available.
