Siemens team up with Foxconn to optimise manufacturing

Siemens and EMS provider Hon Hai Technology Group (Foxconn) have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to drive digital transformation and sustainability in smart manufacturing platforms.

The collaboration focuses on global manufacturing processes in electronics, information and communications technology, and electric vehicles (EV). Siemens and Foxconn are working together to establish a scalable and seamless engineering and manufacturing ecosystem.

“Foxconn is transforming into a platform solutions provider for smart manufacturing, smart EV, and smart city. Joining forces with Siemens accelerates our digital transformation journey and opens up new possibilities for innovation and sustainability," says Young Liu, Chairman and CEO of Hon Hai Technology Group (Foxconn) in a press release.
