Foxconn Ramps Up iPad Production With New Chengdu Plant

Foxconn has started mass production of the iPad at its new plants in Chengdu, China, according to a DigiTimes report.

Foxconn had previously refuted claims that the company would establish iPad production lines at the plants in Chengdu, but related component players have pointed out that Foxconn already started shipping iPads from the site in November and expected the site to become a major supply base starting the first quarter of 2011.

For now the plants only produce 10,000 units a day; however, Foxconn plans to setup about 50 production lines that would produce 40 million units a year.

Currently, most production still comes from Foxconn's plants at Shenzhen, China which are capable of supplying 2.5 million units maximum each month.
