BorgWarner Celebrates Grand Opening in Hungary

BorgWarner Produces Transfer Cases, Valves and AWD couplings in Oroszlány to Meet Increasing Demand for All-wheel Drive Technologies

Auburn Hills, Michigan, August 6, 2015 – BorgWarner celebrated its plant opening in Oroszlány, Hungary, on July 28, 2015. Numerous government officials as well as customers, BorgWarner executives and employees attended the opening ceremony. The wholly-owned campus provides production capacity (43,400 square feet / 4,032 square meters) for advanced all-wheel drive (AWD) solutions such as transfer cases, feeder pumps, valves and AWD couplings for global automakers.

“We are proud to strengthen our product leadership position and expand our local portfolio with AWD technologies by investing in our strategically important location in Hungary. Over the next few years, our plant will provide capacities that will allow us to meet growing customer demand with localized production,” said Dr. Stefan Demmerle, President and General Manager, BorgWarner TorqTransfer Systems. “BorgWarner’s market-leading AWD solutions contribute to enhanced vehicle traction, improved driving dynamics and better fuel economy.”

BorgWarner has been manufacturing innovative technologies in Hungary for over a decade. Located 76 kilometers outside of Budapest, the Oroszlány campus already produces state-of-the-art turbochargers for gasoline and diesel engines. The energy-efficient facility uses waste heat from air compressors and furnaces and will recycle rainwater for watering lawns as well as condensation wastewater. Additionally, the building uses linear fluorescent lamps (LFLs) in most of the production and office areas, and compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs) in the remaining facility to reduce energy consumption.
