Taipei, Jan. 28 (CNA) The Zhengzhou, China plant of Taiwan-based Hon Hai Precision Industry Co., Ltd. -- the world's largest contract electronic product maker -- will immediately begin the recruitment of workers in following the approaching Lunar New Year that begins Feb. 5.

The Zhengzhou plant of Hon Hai (trading as Foxconn Technology Group) has been seeking to employ new workers since the beginning of January and will immediately restart its recruitment from Feb. 12 once the Lunar New Year holiday is over, according to its employment center.

The recruitment will cover a wide range of fields, including production line assemblers, quality control and warehouse personnel, and injection modeling/stamping/coating workers.

Since the beginning of this year, Hon Hai's plants in Taiyuan (太原), Chengdu (成都), Hangzhou (杭州), Kunshan (昆山), Huai'an (淮安), Shenzhen (深圳) and Langfang (廊坊) have been recruiting new blood, offering monthly salaries from 3,800 (US$562)-5,500 renminbi.

According to Hon Hai, it still needs to employ over 50,000 people to replenish its workforce for its plants in China. The group had employed some 604,600 workers as of the end of April 2018.

The consolidated revenue of Hon Hai for the whole of 2018 reached a record high of NT$5.3 trillion (US$172 billion), the company reported on its website.

Its Q4 consolidated revenue totaled a single-quarter high of NT$1.81 trillion, while the figure for December last year was NT$619.316 billion, the second-highest single-month level in the company's history.
