Foxconn is looking for Taiwanese companies to invest in the supply chain that would service electric vehicles being made at the former GM Lordstown plant.
21 News got its first look inside the facility Wednesday since Foxconn bought it from Lordstown Motors.

A delegation of about 40 people from Taiwan toured the now Foxconn-owned plant in Lordstown.
They are potential investors or leaders of companies that would open supply chain product facilities here to help make EV's at Lordstown.

Foxconn officials wanted to make it clear that their company wants to make a big impact in the EV market.

"We are looking for the new product and dominate the EV segment not only in the U.S. but also in the global market and we put the resources behind them," said Jerry Hsiao, Chief Product Officer for Foxconn.

"For Foxconn's involvement here in this region we see taiwan in the footprint in Ohio's robust auto industry. I think it's a very significant step," said Johnson Chiang, Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in Chicago.

Representatives from the state were on hand to make sure those potential companies know that Ohio wants their business.

"We have this trained work force that knows this industry but we are also a very tax friendly, business friendly state for very large investments like this," said Dana Saucier, V.P. Jobs Ohio.

Foxconn talked about a joint venture that would create new future vehicle platform designs at Lordstown. They call it MIH EV, which stands for mobility and harmony. Then Lordstown Motors spoke about their plans for after they build their first 500 Endurance trucks here later this year.

"We are going to work over time to continuously improve the product, reduce the manufacturing costs and at the same time work on the future portfolio of vehicles," said Lordstown Motors President, Edward Hightower.

While Foxconn continues to look for other companies to come into the Lordstown plant and build vehicles they say Fisker will be ready to go with the production line of the Fisker PEAR in 2024.
