A Foxconn executive is sharing his vision of the company at a manufacturing conference in Milwaukee. On Thursday, Foxconn’s vice president of business operations Bill Mitchell said, “We’re building the airplane while we’re flying and we’re redesigning it.”
He used that analogy to describe the Foxconn Technology Group’s Wisconsin plans. Mitchell told the group of about 500 people at the conference that working for the company has been challenging but interesting. Mitchell said the Mount Pleasant development is something that has never been done before on this scale and that’s why it has challenges.
