BorgWarner Celebrates Opening of New Production Facility in Hungary

BorgWarner Adds Advanced Emissions Products to Local Product Portfolio in Oroszlány.

Auburn Hills, Michigan, October 6, 2015 – BorgWarner inaugurated a new manufacturing facility for innovative emissions technologies at its campus in Oroszlány, Hungary, on October 2, 2015. The opening ceremony for the 270,000-square-foot (25,000-square-meter) building was attended by government officials, customers and BorgWarner representatives. At the new facility, the company will produce key technologies for modern engines aimed at reducing emissions, such as exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) valves, coolers, tubes and thermostats. BorgWarner will provide numerous major automakers with its state-of-the-art emissions technologies.

“With our investment in Hungary, we are strengthening our excellent position throughout Europe as a leading supplier of environmentally friendly and fuel-efficient solutions that help automakers meet stringent emissions standards,” said Brady Ericson, President and General Manager, BorgWarner Emissions Systems. “Over the next few years, our new plant will allow us to serve growing customer demands with localized production.”

BorgWarner’s handicap-accessible and energy-efficient facility, located 76 kilometers outside of Budapest, uses waste heat from air compressors and recycles rainwater for lawn irrigation. In addition to sustainable water usage, the new building benefits from reduced energy consumption due to LED lighting and the use of solar energy. The campus in Oroszlány has been producing advanced turbochargers for gasoline and diesel engines since 2001. In addition to expansions in 2003, 2004 and 2013, BorgWarner recently added a new facility for all-wheel drive solutions to the campus. The latest addition for state-of-the-art emissions technologies further enhances the local product portfolio.
