Foxconn is currently producing TVs for Vizio in China, but Vizio that could be an important partner in bringing TV production to the US, according to the report. At CES 2014, Vizio showcased an impressive 120-inch LCD TV, produced by Foxconn. Terry Gou commented specifically on the TV, saying;

- “We have many big projects in the U.S. coming up,” said Gou. “For instance, is it possible to make our 120-inch TVs in Taiwan and ship them over? It’s impossible. We have to make them on site.”

Vizio will start selling its 120-inch Reference TV in the fourth quarter of 2014, but it is unclear where it will be produced.
