Delphi completes sale of U.S. battery plant to Johnson Controls

Delphi Corporation has completed the sale of its New Brunswick, N.J., battery manufacturing facility to Johnson Controls Inc. and has thus completed divestment of its global battery business. Delphi has one remaining battery production facility in Fitzgerald, Ga, that will continue operations into next year as a supplier to Johnson Controls. James A. Bertrand, president of Delphi Automotive Holdings Group called the sale of the New Jersey plant “an important step forward in our overall restructuring plan.” Approximately 100 former Delphi employees will transition to Johnson Controls. Other employees have accepted early retirement or a buy-out option.
