BorgWarner has expanded its facility in Oroszlany, Hungary, adding a 50,000-square-foot building that will provide extra manufacturing, training, development and administrative space. The firm’s four-building campus employs about 600 people who produce turbochargers that equip more than 50 car models for customers in Europe, China, India and Mexico.
BorgWarner expects increased demand for its advanced turbocharging technologies as OEMs around the world work to achieve lower emissions, better fuel efficiency and improved performance. The operation has increased annual production from 40,000 units in 2000 to 1.5 million units in 2007. The facility's new assembly lines can adapt to meet specific customer requirements.
