Foxconn May Lose The "Conn"


Foxconn, Hon Hai Precision Industry Co's trading name, may lose the "conn" (connector) from its name as the company repoprtedly plans to split off its connector business.

Reuters reported earlier today the news, adding that the split could be officially announced as soon as next month.

The Network Interconnection Business Group (NWinG), which makes connectors and cables for the stagnant PC sector, will become an independent entity from July 1, the report claims.

The reason behind the split off is the dull computer demand, the report added.

The connector-making operation was Hon Hai's primary line of work when it was founded in 1974.

Hon Hai is expected to make an announcement related to the unit's future at the annual shareholder meeting on June 26.

Previously, Hon Hai had also split off its touch panel and camera module businesses into separate companies.

Hon Hai has been also trying to diversify away from its core contract manufacturing business. Earlier this week, the company announced plans to work with Mozilla on devices and applications run on the Firefox operating system.
