TAIPEI -- Hon Hai Precision Industry (Foxconn), the world's largest contract electronics assembler, today reported unconsolidated September sales rose 8.5% year-over-year to NT$240.54 billion ($8.21 billion).

Revenue for the month rose 8.2% from T$222.31 billion in August. It's September revenue by itself is more than all but a handful of other ODM/EMS companies will accrue for the entire year.

While not commenting on the results, Foxconn likely benefited from the launch of the Apple iPhone5.  Foxconn, which is the largest EMS/ODM company and the fourth-largest printed circuit board fabricator, has come under a new round of accusations by labor rights groups for its worker conditions and treatment.

Ed.: NT$29.3130= US$1.

Parity emerges among EMS Factories from Asia, Mexico and the US.

For the first time in years we see parity in the Eastern US among EMS factories from Asia, Mexico and the US.

Now more than ever, such EMS assignments will require deeper investigation relating to the OEMs’ evaluation of manufacturing strategies.
