AUBURN HILLS, MI — BorgWarner has broken ground for its new world headquarters in Auburn Hills, Mich. In September 2003, the powertrain supplier announced that it would relocate its corporate headquarters from Chicago to metro Detroit in order to maintain closer connections with the company’s global customers and suppliers, as well as maximize opportunities for collaboration with the BorgWarner Powertrain Technical Center, which is also located in Auburn Hills.

BorgWarner will lease 40,000 square feet of the new, 60,000 square-foot building, which will be owned by Etkin Equities. Contruction is expected to be complete by April 2005.

“Every day we get a few steps closer to establishing ourselves in metro Detroit — the heart of the global automotive industry, home to several of our customer organizations, and the headquarters of three of our global business units,” said Tim Manganello, BorgWarner chairman and CEO. “We are already seeing the benefits of a Detroit-based location for a leading powertrain supplier that is focused exclusively on providing solutions for enhancing fuel economy, reducing emissions and enhancing vehicle stability and performance.”

About 70 employees will eventually be based at the headquarters, including the staffs of departments such as the chairman and CEO’s office, finance and administration, business development, corporate communications and investor relations, human resources, information technology and legal/patent.
