Google recently announced that Flextronics has agreed to purchase two manufacturing facilities owned by Motorola. Motorola is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Google. The factories in question are located in Tianjin, China, and Jaguariuna, Brazil. The assets and employees of these facilities will be transferred from Google to Flextronics. At the same time, Flextronics has signed a service agreement with Google to manufacture its Android and other mobile devices moving forward. The companies did not disclose terms of the deal, which requires regulatory approval before it can be completed. Google and Flextronics expect the deal to close during the first half of 2013. The news follows Google's announcement that it plans to shutter Motorola's research and design and marketing organizations in Korea.
