Foxconn to become the largest desktop, tablet, and smartphone OEM / ODM in 2015

By Anton D. Nagy June 26, 2015, 2:25 am

Apple, Microsoft, Sony, Acer, Nokia, Toshiba, Xiaomi, Huawei, Lenovo, are just a few of Foxconn’s largest clients. Hon Hai Precision Industry Co., Ltd., trading as Foxconn Technology Group, is a Taiwanese company that also happens to be the world’s largest electronics contractor manufacturer. At a recent company shareholder meeting, the company’s chairman, Terry Guo, made some reassuring statements.

According to Guo, this year, in 2015, Foxconn will become the world’s largest desktop, tablet, and smartphone OEM (original equipment manufacturer) / ODM (original design manufacturer). Foxconn is also the largest OEM for iPhones, and Guo reassured the shareholders — worried about Apple contracting other OEMs — that the company has been collaborating with Apple since the first generation of its products, and will continue to be Apple’s major OEM.


Foxconn is involved in both the iPhone and the iPad’s production, and, according to Guo, other OEMs couldn’t take a larger slice of the pizza just by going below Foxconn’s prices. Pegatron is involved in both the iPhone and the iPad’s production, while Wistron is an additional OEMs for iPhone, and Compal Electronics for the iPad
