Flooding has hit Apple’s largest iPhone production site in Central China

Flooding has hit Apple’s largest iPhone production site in Central China

The damage to the manufacturing hub in Zhengzhou city, Henan province, however, appeared limited, the workers said. Taiwan-based Foxconn Technology Group operates three factories in the city with hundreds of thousands of workers—many of them living on factory campuses—producing more than half the world’s iPhones, according to analysts.

TAIPEI—The severe flooding in central China cut power temporarily at Apple Inc.’s biggest iPhone manufacturing site as water seeped into some areas and the site’s operator gave many workers time off, said factory employees there.

Foxconn said that it has implemented an emergency response plan for flood control but there had been no direct impact to its facilities from the flooding.

The potential disruption to production arrives just as Apple suppliers start to gear up for this year’s new iPhone models, expected to be launched in the fall. Assembly of the new models and their components generally starts around July and ramps up in the following weeks.
