TAIPEI, June 23 Hon Hai Precision Industry
will recruit over 100,000 people in mainland China to
produce the newest iPhone from Apple Inc, Taiwan's
Economic Daily News said, in what the report called the firm's
largest single hiring spree in China.
Fellow Taiwanese contract manufacturer Pegatron Corp
will expand its workforce in one mainland factory by
30 percent, also in response to expected high demand for the new
iPhone, Economic Daily News said on Monday.
Hon Hai, the world's largest contract manufacturer of
electronic goods, will produce 70 percent of the phones, largely
anticipated for release this autumn, with Pegatron set to
produce the remaining 30 percent, according to the report.
Hon Hai had no comment on the report.
Representatives for Pegatron could not immediately be
reached for comment.
