Share post:

Foxconn has announced a partnership with Indian company Vedanta, which will produce semiconductors in India.

Under the deal, Foxconn will invest $118.7 million to create a joint venture with Vedanta which will be the main shareholder in the new company. Foxconn would hold 40% of the shares.

“This first-of-its-kind joint venture between the two companies will support Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s vision to create an ecosystem for semiconductor manufacturing in India,” Foxconn said in a statement.

Foxconn, the world’s largest contract electronics maker, is using this strategy to invest its revenues in other areas, including electric vehicles (EVs) and semiconductors.

Foxconn, a major Apple supplier in 2021, has partnered with Yageo Corp to make semiconductor chips, and the company said it was in talks with related foundries to make chips for EVs.
