Businesses interested in getting a piece of the $10 billion manufacturing campus that Foxconn Technology Group has planned for southeastern Wisconsin learned more about the project Tuesday afternoon in Eau Claire.

About 25 business people — hailing from Eau Claire firms, across the state and even Canada — attended the two-hour information session at the Chippewa Valley Technical College Energy Education Center, 4000 Campus Road.
