BorgWarner Targets Increasing Demand in North America for Fuel-Efficient Turbocharging Technologies with New Production Facility in Ramos

Auburn Hills, Michigan, October 17, 2011 – Driven by growing demand for BorgWarner’s fuel-efficient turbocharging technologies in North America, the company has expanded its global capacity. The new production facility in Ramos, Mexico currently supports production of turbochargers for Ford’s 3.5-liter Ecoboost engine for rear-wheel drive cars and trucks launched in November 2010.

"Gasoline and diesel turbocharged engines are key technologies included in every major carmaker’s future plans in North America, making it the fastest growing turbocharger market in the world,” said Frederic Lissalde, President and General Manager, BorgWarner Turbo Systems Passenger Car Products. "Our new plant in Ramos is strategically located to meet growing customer demand through local production supported by our global resources. We look forward to bringing the benefits of improved fuel economy, powerful performance and reduced emissions to drivers throughout North America.”

BorgWarner plans to employ more than 185 people at the plant, located near the city of Monterrey, to support already awarded new business. With its excellent automotive infrastructure, the region offers optimal conditions for the state-of-the-art turbocharger facility, where key components are produced and final assembly is completed.
