Hon Hai Precision Industry



Hon Hai Precision Industries, known as Foxconn, grew to vast scale by helping build Apple’s iPhone into a world leader. But with the introduction of the iPhone 6 in late 2014, Foxconn saw its good fortune start to reverse. Competitor Pegatron grabbed a chunk of iPhone assembly work and smaller firms also won away some of its phone case manufacturing role. Then the summer of 2015 saw a huge slowdown in smartphone sales and weakness across the Chinese economy. It was also a year of diversification, as CEO Terry Gou pledged to build a $5 billion factory in western India, with plans for possibly a dozen more to follow. As the year came to a close, Gou signaled vague interest in troubled Japanese electronics firm Sharp — interest that grew more intense and turned into a bid for the company in 2016.
