Foxconn has already announced a partnership with a major Milwaukee-based employer: Rockwell Automation.

But observers say more partnerships with companies like Johnson Controls and GE Healthcare are likely to happen as the Taiwanese company finds its footing in Wisconsin.

In one such agreement, Milwaukee-based Rockwell Automation will be collaborating with Foxconn to “increase operational efficiencies in electronics manufacturing to new levels,” Terry Gou, Foxconn chairman and CEO, said in a statement.

The two companies will be working together on workforce development and training. Foxconn says it has committed to work with Rockwell Automation and ManpowerGroup to provide skills training for military veterans.

Blake Moret, Rockwell Automation president and CEO, says Foxconn shares Rockwell’s commitment to “expanding and upskilling the U.S. workforce to ensure there is the necessary talent for advanced manufacturing roles.”
