Foxconn celebrated one of its team members at the Lordstown EV plant for his hard work and service in the U.S. Military.

Foxconn and Brent Williams were honored with the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR) award from the National Guard.

Williams is a supervisor in the EV manufacturing division in Lordstown.

An ESGR award recognizes employers who support National Guard and Reserve members through policies and practices that support their employees' participation in the National Guard and Reserve.

"It's important that we also try to award the employers because they take a real hit when the guards and reservists are off for training in the summer or on the weekend," Jim Fairbanks, ESGR Employer Outreach Coordinator, said. "Everyone here knows someone who's been deployed for a long period of time."

Williams thanked Foxconn for their unwavering support for the many people who work there and serve in the armed forces.
