iPad Assembler Foxconn Has Helped Apple Make A Lot Of Money - Hopes To Make Some Itself Soon

Chief Executive of Foxconn parent company Hon Hai Precision, Terry Gou, has said that moves to make the production lines which churn out Apple's gadgets more efficient will start to turn a profit later this year.

According thinq_ the gadget assembler has failed to keep up with the meteoric rise in profits Apple has seen on the back of the iPhone and iPads 1 and 2 because the devices are 'very difficult to make'.

But the company has learned lessons since the launch of the pioneering touch-screen tablet and has worked out ways of making them more efficient.

Speaking at an annual shareholder meeting, Gou apparently said, “We’ve helped Apple make a lot of money. If our customers make money, then we can also make money. I most fear customers that don’t make money.”
