Michigan-based BorgWarner Opens New Facility in Manesar, India

Auburn Hills, Michigan - 07 February 2013 - BorgWarner opened a new 86,000-square-foot facility in Manesar, India, near New Delhi to produce exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) coolers, tubes, valves and modules. Built to replace the previous facility in Faridabad, the wholly-owned operation will expand manufacturing capacity and provide sales, design, test and validation capabilities for a wide range of domestic and international automakers, including Maruti Suzuki, Mahindra & Mahindra, Renault, GM, Tata Motors, Fiat, Ashok Leyland, Volvo Eicher and others. The company expects its Indian EGR business to grow at a compounded annual growth rate of 35 percent over the next five years. 

“Our newest facility will enable BorgWarner to strengthen its market-leading position in EGR coolers and meet growing demand with a complete range of EGR products for both passenger cars and commercial diesel vehicles,” said Brady Ericson, President and General Manager, BorgWarner Emissions Systems. “We are investing in local production as well as local testing to support our customers quickly with system-based solutions tailored to their specific needs.” 

Today’s downsized engines generate higher temperatures in the combustion chamber forming nitrogen oxide (NOx). BorgWarner’s EGR technologies help automakers reduce NOx to meet stringent emissions regulations by recirculating and cooling exhaust gases to reduce combustion temperatures. 

BorgWarner’s new environmentally friendly facility in India makes maximum use of natural light, features LED lighting to conserve energy and harvests rainwater for landscaping and sanitation. 

Auburn Hills, Michigan-based BorgWarner Inc. (NYSE: BWA) is a technology leader in highly engineered components and systems for powertrain applications worldwide. Operating manufacturing and technical facilities in 57 locations in 19 countries, the company develops products to improve fuel economy, reduce emissions and enhance performance.
