MOUNT PLEASANT — Questions continue to swirl as Foxconn remains nontransparent about what it is, and isn’t, producing in Mount Pleasant.

Now, according to a statement made to The Journal Times, Foxconn Technology Group plans “to capture a substantial percentage” of the U.S. server board market. A server board hosts some of the most important parts of any computing system, such as memory capacity and processor speed.

Although The Journal Times did ask, Foxconn Technology Group did not detail what “a substantial percentage” means, what types of server boards are to be made, how many server boards are being made, how many workers are being employed in that effort and for whom they are being produced.

“As a matter of policy and for reasons of commercial sensitivity, we do not comment on any aspect of our specific operations or work for existing or previous customers,” an email from Foxconn Technology Group said in response to a question asking if Foxconn was producing servers for Google in Mount Pleasant, as Bloomberg reported in November.
