Foxconn plans to make the Mahoning Valley its North American hub for EVs

Lordstown, Ohio – Congressman Tim Ryan (OH-13) issued the following statement today after Lordstown Motors Company (LMC) announced a finalized deal to sell its Lordstown plant to Foxconn:

“Since the appointment of Daniel Ninivaggi as Chief Executive Officer of Lordstown Motors Corporation, I have remained in close discussions with him. Today I was delighted to speak with Mr. Ninivaggi and Foxconn Executive, Jerry Hsiao, to congratulate both Lordstown Motors and Foxconn on this transformative investment for our workers, our community, and for the future of electric vehicle manufacturing in the United States. Foxconn knows what our Valley workforce is capable of, and I am confident they will make the Mahoning Valley the North American hub for electric vehicle production. I stand ready to continue to do everything in my power to support Foxconn and Lordstown Motors to further cement Northeast Ohio as America’s Voltage Valley.”
