According to reports, apple is considering the possibility of assembling iPhones in Vietnam and sending representatives to visit the factory facilities of manufacturing partner luxshare in Vietnam. Tang due bang, foreign affairs manager of lichen precision, said that Apple representatives visited the Vietnam plant of Lixun precision this summer to investigate the rapid construction of the plant and the possibility of producing iPhones. Bang said the representative visited the factory in the van Trung Industrial Park to make sure the plant was of the right size, had the right equipment and the investment money available to assemble the iPhone. < / P > < p > “Apple has been conducting research on the production of iPhones in the Beijiang factory of lexun precision,” bang said. “Apple is impressed by the speed of the construction of this fast facility. At the same time, through practical research, apple highly appreciates Beijiang province and its hard-working workers’ potential. ” < / P > < p > one of the factory’s many OEM factories serving apple in Vietnam, in December 2019, it sought funds to expand the airpods production line, and it was obvious that lexion precision later found an investment. Bang said the 30 hectare plant was built quickly in five months after Apple asked for more production. < / P > < p > it is reported that the investment of Lixun precision in Beijiang province has been 270 million US dollars. Although lexion already has 28000 employees there, it will need more workers, about 50000 to 60000, if it is licensed to make iPhones. < / P > < p > however, some of the facilities in the plant failed to meet Apple’s requirements, especially those related to dormitories. Although it is not clear in which aspects of the company failed to meet the requirements, it seems that the dormitory environment is the main reason that hinders apple from assembling iPhones in the factory. < p > < p > Lixun precision also hopes to further expand the scale of the plant and add two more plots outside the industrial park to build more dormitories. At present, Lixun precision is applying to the local government for construction approval. < / P > < p > it is not only Vietnam that lichen plans to produce iPhones. In July, the company bought an iPhone assembly plant in China for $472 million from Wistron.
