BorgWarner opens 2nd plant in TN
CHENNAI: BorgWarner has inaugurated another plant on 110,500 sq ft area in Tiruvallur district, near Chennai, which provides extensive manufacturing, assembly and storage space.
The opening of this new plant was on September 21, 2022, attended by BorgWarner executives and employees.
Assembly of BorgWarner’s high-performance engine control and variable camshaft timing (VCT) systems will be centralised in the new facility, which will also provide space for warehousing and shipping. BorgWarner’s VCT technology optimises efficiency and contributes to reducing emissions in combustion-powered vehicles – a further step on the company’s path toward cleaner and more sustainable mobility.
“The current expansion was necessary; we needed the extra space to meet our increasing customer demand in India as a major local manufacturer,” said Pei Wang, VP-GM Asia, BorgWarner Morse Systems. “Having the two plants in the same area enables us to optimise logistics and improve our supply chain. Furthermore, the expansion highlights our role as an important regional employer.”
The company believes this expansion will increase the localised sourcing and manufacturing setup to deliver the competitive edge in the Indian market. It anticipates operations will take place across an area of over 83,600 sq ft.
