BorgWarner has inaugurated another plant in Thiruvallur District near Chennai, India, which provides extensive manufacturing, assembly and storage space. The opening of this new plant was celebrated on September 21, 2022, with a festive ribbon-cutting ceremony attended by BorgWarner executives and employees as well as local media and a priest. Having two sites operating in close proximity is expected to increase production efficiency and strengthen the company’s position in the region.

Assembly of BorgWarner’s high-performance engine control and variable camshaft timing (VCT) systems will be centralized in the new facility, which will also provide space for warehousing and shipping. BorgWarner’s VCT technology optimizes 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, Vice President and General Manager Asia, BorgWarner Morse Systems. “Having the two plants in the same area enables us to optimize logistics and improve our supply chain. Furthermore, the expansion highlights our role as an important regional employer.”

With the opening of this plant, BorgWarner is ideally positioned to meet the ever-growing business needs of the automotive industry, not only in India but also in the entire Asian market. BorgWarner believes this expansion will significantly increase the localized sourcing and manufacturing setup to deliver a competitive edge in the Indian market. BorgWarner anticipates that operations will take place across a total area of more than 83,600 square foot, enabling further expansion of manufacturing capacities and the creation of additional jobs in the region.
