As the launch of the iPhone 13 is approaching, Apple’s main contract partner, Taiwanese Hon Hai Precision Industry (Foxconn brand) has stepped up the recruitment of workers for a new assembly line at its manufacturing facility in Zhengzhou, China.
Foxconn is expected to recruit 200,000 additional employees by the end of September, as Apple will unveil the next-generation iPhone next month, according to a local TV channel.
According to Foxconn deputy general manager Wang Xue, hiring the required number of workers was the weakest point for the company’s large manufacturing complex. The plant can accommodate up to 350,000 assembly line workers and produce up to 500,000 smartphones per day.
Wang expressed confidence that the manufacturing complex, which spans the entire area called iPhone City, will be able to meet its staffing target “at the current rate of recruitment” supported by local authorities.
The active recruitment suggests that the main supplier Apple is coping with the anticipated release schedule for the new iPhone 13.
Apple plans to ship 130 million to 150 million new iPhones by the end of this year, Dan Ives, managing director of investment firm Wedbush Securities, said in a research note in June. Apple’s supply chain in Asia will be able to produce 90 million to 100 million units to meet initial orders for the new iPhone 13, Ives said.
As Apple suppliers in China vie for workers ahead of the iPhone 13 launch, Foxconn has raised monetary incentives for new hires to a new all-time high. The Integrated Digital Product Business Group (iDPG), the Taiwanese company’s iPhone assembly division, is offering bonuses of up to 12,700 yuan ($ 1960) per worker found for a new production line. According to the company’s latest hiring announcements, every new iDPBG employee will receive a 2,000 yuan transportation subsidy and a signing bonus of between 8,500 and 9,500 yuan after working on the production line for 90 days. Those who find new employees will also receive a bonus of RMB 1,200. As a result, the total amount of monetary awards reaches 12,700 yuan.
