Foxconn’s January sales surge as China COVID disruption shaken off
Taiwan’s Foxconn (2317.TW), the world’s largest contract electronics maker and major iPhone assembler for Apple Inc (AAPL.O), said on Sunday its revenue in January jumped 48.2% year-on-year, as it shook off COVID disruptions in China.
Revenue in January reached a record high, at T$660.4 billion ($22 billion), with operations returning to normal and shipments increasing at its Zhengzhou campus in China, a centre for iPhone production, the company said in a statement.
Compared to the previous month, revenue was up 4.93% with smart consumer electronics products, which includes smartphones, and computing products showing strong double-digit growth, it said.
Production of iPhones faced disruption ahead of Christmas and January’s Lunar New Year holidays, after curbs to control COVID-19 prompted thousands of workers to leave Foxconn’s factory lines in Zhengzhou.
Analysts say Foxconn assembles around 70% of iPhones, and the Zhengzhou plant produces the majority of its premium models including the iPhone 14 Pro.
