Major Apple supplier Foxconn has “basically” resumed normal operations at its most important campuses in the Chinese city of Shenzhen after disruptions caused by the COVID-19 outbreaks, the company said on Monday.
The world’s largest contract electronics manufacturer said on Wednesday it had resumed some manufacturing and operations at its Shenzhen campuses after some employees settled into a bubble life and work requested by the local government due to the spread of COVID-19.
The company said in a statement that, according to the government’s notice, it has “basically resumed normal operations and manufacturing operations” at its main campuses such as the Longhua and Guanlan urban areas.
This is “subject to the epidemic prevention policy and strict adherence to epidemic prevention and control measures,” he added.
Employees in Futian’s “high-risk” area must continue to work from home, according to an internal company document reviewed by Reuters.
Only a small part of Foxconn’s production for the Apple iPhone in China is carried out in the southern city of Shenzhen, while the majority is in Zhengzhou in the central province of Henan, the sources said.
