Apple to bring production of Mac mini to the US

Friday 28 December 2012 | 10:44 CET | News
Apple is said to be considering a move that will bring Mac mini production to the US, through manufacturing partner Foxconn, according to supply chain sources speaking to Digitimes. Foxconn already has an estimated fifteen operating bases in the US, according to Digitimes, and two of those at lease include factories in California and Texas that finish partially assembled products. Part of the production effort will involve Foxconn's push to fit out some of those facilities with more automated workers. More automated production lines would help Apple get around the limitations it has cited in the past for failing to do more production in the US, namely costs and getting production facilities up to its exacting standards.
