BorgWarner Opens New Plant In China

BorgWarner serves increasing demand for fuel-efficient turbocharging technologies with new gold LEED certified production facility in Taicang.

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. – BorgWarner officially opened its new production facility in Taicang, China, on Sept 4. With a building area of 161,500 square feet, BorgWarner’s new green facility is strategically located in a major development area close to Shanghai. This is BorgWarner’s second turbocharger plant in China. James R. Verrier, president and CEO, BorgWarner, speaks during the new production facility opening in Taicang, China.
Propelled by growing demand in the expanding Chinese automotive market, the new BorgWarner facility will produce advanced turbocharging technologies for several automakers. BorgWarner says it expects the Chinese light vehicle turbocharger market to more than double from 4.2 million units in 2014 to 8.6 million units by 2019 as emissions standards become increasingly tight. The new production plant in Taicang will employ more than 150 people by the end of 2014. This figure is expected to rise to 500 employees by 2018.
The environmentally friendly campus has received LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) gold certification. Using natural lighting, solar power and rainwater recycling reduces the facility’s energy consumption by about 22 percent. Since establishing a turbocharger plant in Ningbo in 2006, BorgWarner has continuously enlarged that campus, using state-of-the-art geothermal technology to heat and cool the building while reducing energy costs by 30 to 60 percent without emitting carbon dioxide.
