Foxconn Begins Laying Off Workers in Indiana

A subsidiary of Taiwan-based Foxconn/Hon Hai Technology Group has 
announced plans to reduce its workforce in Plainfield. Q-Edge Corp. 
says it will lay off more than 150 employees at the Hendricks County 
facility over the next three months. 
In a notice to the state, Q-Edge says the layoffs are "due to changes 
in our business and production objectives." The company says the 
layoffs are expected to begin "shortly," though a specific time frame 
was not given. 
The majority of the affected positions include manufacturing and 
assembly employees, as well as related office personnel. The layoffs 
are expected to be permanent, however the company says "Should the 
Company experience a return of such business, these employees may be 
considered for rehire, but this cannot be determined at this time." 
Inside INdiana Business has reached out to Foxconn for more information.
