The company says lost production will be minimal, despite the heavy media coverage.
"Overall it probably won't be significant because this factory mainly does a lot of components, auto electronics, consumer electronics and precision molding and not finished goods," said spokesman Louis Woo. "If we lose just one day, I don't expect it will impact any finished goods significantly and with overtime we could make up any shortfall."
Over 2000 workers began rioting and clashing with guards outside of their dormitory last night, causing the plant to be shut down. There were conflicting reports on what started the riot, with most believing it was due to working conditions requiring mandatory overtime.
Foxconn is best known for being the manufacturer behind assembling Apple iPhones.
