Chamber: Foxconn will Help La Crosse

Foxconn Could Help La Crosse Too

July 27–Vicki Markussen, executive director of the La Crosse Area Chamber of Commerce, said the Foxconn announcement is good news for La Crosse and the rest of Wisconsin.

“The impact of the Foxconn announcement will ripple to La Crosse,” she said. “Even indirectly for Wisconsin to be chosen as the first North American location for Foxconnshines a spotlight on our state that will cause other site selectors to stop and take a look the many wonderful assets our state offers to businesses.”

She said La Crosse area businesses need to learn how to tie into the supply chain for Foxconn. “A key to their competitiveness is finding local suppliers. We hope some of those suppliers are La Crosse companies.”

“The Foxconn jobs are the type of jobs we need in Wisconsin to raise our quality of life and our talent attraction to the next level,” she said.
