Auburn Hills, Michigan, March 25, 2014 – BorgWarner will expand its Propulsion Technical Center in Auburn Hills, Michigan, to support programs in North America and supplement its global network of technical centers. The nearly 46,000-square-foot addition will include space for program managers, sales and engineering professionals. Driven by BorgWarner’s escalating growth, the expansion is expected to be complete in early 2015 and support up to 200 regular full-time jobs at the BorgWarner facility.

“Around the world, BorgWarner is building new manufacturing facilities to deliver technologies engineered to improve fuel economy, emissions and performance. Expanding the Propulsion Technical Center in Michigan will help us accelerate innovation for current and future programs,” said Christopher P.

Opened in 2002, the BorgWarner Propulsion Technical Center unified the company’s diverse businesses into a “propulsion powerhouse,” accommodating engineering, research and development, sales and marketing for each group. The work environment reflects BorgWarner’s commitment to innovation through collaboration. Earlier this year, the company completed a new engineering garage and vehicle test lab at the technical center. In 2005, BorgWarner also moved its world headquarters from Chicago to Auburn Hills.
