Foxconn Technology Group has awarded $13 million in construction contracts to three Wisconsin companies.

The contracts cover excavation, foundation work, materials testing and the installation of elevators at its Gen 6 display manufacturing facility in the Wisconn Valley Science and Technology Park in Mount Pleasant.

The company awarded contracts to the Fond du Lac-based C.D. Smith Construction Inc. for excavation and concrete foundation work.

The Waukesha office of Arlington Heights, Ill.-based PSI Intertek received the contract for materials testing for the foundations.

The Milwaukee office of Farmington, Conn.-based Otis Elevator Co. was named the sub-contractor for elevator work.

“We’re proud to be delivering on our ‘Wisconsin First’ commitment by awarding these contracts to outstanding Wisconsin-based companies,” said Peter Buck, executive director of the Wisconn Valley Science and Technology Park.

“These are the first of many forthcoming bid awards for the vertical construction of our advanced manufacturing facility, and we’re excited to drive further the construction progress at the Wisconn Valley Science and Technology Park in the coming weeks and months.”

Earlier this year, Foxconn awarded $34 million in contracts for utility and roadway work at the campus.
