BorgWarner to Expand Production of eMobility Technologies

BorgWarner's new plant for manufacturing power electronic components and electric motors is expected to be open by Q2 2024.

BorgWarner announced an investment in San Luis Potosi, Mexico, that includes a new manufacturing plant focusing on power electronics components and electric motors. The company said it chose San Luis Potosí as a strategic location to support responsible actions as a key player in the supply chain for the industry in Mexico and around the world.

After operating for more than eight years in the Mexican state, the company said the plant in San Luis Potosí will be one of its first to integrate a clean room, becoming an electromobility manufacturing hub. It will also house a product validation testing laboratory, with a focus on inverters, opening the door for the development of new technologies in house.

San Luis Potosí Economic Development Secretary Juan Carlos Valladares and Mayor of Villa De Reyes, Daniel Lagunas, attended the groundbreaking ceremony. Dr. Stefan Demmerle, president and general manager of BorgWarner PowerDrive Systems, and Ulises Pérez, plant manager of the San Luis Potosí facility were also present for the groundbreaking.

“We are very proud of this project, which is firmly committed to enabling a sustainable future. Our Charging Forward 2027 Strategy demands agility and innovation, which is why we have the responsibility to push the transition towards electrification not only in manufacturing but also in product development.” said Demmerle.

The new plant is expected to be open by Q2 2024. Currently, BorgWarner has a manufacturing plant in San Luis Potosí, located in Tres Naciones industrial park, which is 100% dedicated to the assembly of integrated electric drive units (iDM) for light electric vehicles for global OEM customers as well as components for eMotors.
