    Default Apple Products May Soon Be Manufactured in Brazil


    With Apple’s ever expanding array of consumer products, rumors are circulating that Foxconn may be preparing to open a new manufacturing plant in Brazil to keep up with demand for Apple products. According to a study cited by the Secretary for Economic Development of Jundiai during a recent ceremony, the plant is expected to be located in Jundiai, a city in São Paulo, Brazil. Foxconn already has plants in Jundiai manufacturing products for HP and Sony. Expanding this operation to include new plants to produce Apple products, does make sense, however.

    Foxconn currently does all of its Apple manufacturing at its plants in China. It's unclear why Foxconn would want to move some of its Apple manufacturing to Brazil. When Foxconn was recently questioned about this, they would neither confirm nor deny this rumor.

    Foxconn isn’t the only company who would like to see Apple manufacture products in São Paulo, as Brazilian billionaire Eike Batista has stated that he's willing to pay $1.6 billion to build a plant in his country. Because Foxconn already has manufacturing plants in Brazil, they may simply want to diversify their manufacturing operations.

    With natural disasters seemingly on the rise, manufacturing a majority of products at one location may not be a wise business strategy anymore. Building products in more than one location ensures that there will always be a steady supply of products available, no matter what situations may arise globally. Hopefully, if this rumor is true, it will allow Apple to lower its prices.

    Nah they're not taking over the world,they're just hot at the moment. But it's a good idea to bring it to Brazil, little close than China.

    I wonder if the building of these new facilities means the destruction of natural habitat.

    Too bad they couldn't make them in America. I know I know I know all about the pricing and labor issues. But we can all dream

    Dont worry about that. With all the "enviro safe" ratings apple brags about... If they did build a plant in natural habitats, activists would come along and protest.

    This will certainly be a real good shot for everyone but more expected for us brazilians! Hope becomes a true story. It make sense as we have a big market for apple down here. ;-)

    Apple will never lower its prices, their products fly off the shelves at the prices they are at now why should Apple ever lower its prices when we all flock to the Apple stores on a new release and camp out for their products.

    Yeah right! They'll just take more profits even if this makes thier products cost less to produce.

    Not a chance in hell will Apple lower their prices. The cost of making their products versus what they sell for already allows for a modest cut in price but they don't.
    It might not be that much cheaper to manufacture in Brazil if the major components still come from Asia (ie Samsung)
    It might also lead to more product leaks

    Not to mention all the Brazilian disease embedded in the products and their packaging (especially adhesive tapes), that will hopefully hit the xenophobic types like you.

    Agreed...although you won't catch me camping out for any product.
