Chennai (Tamil Nadu) 

The US-based auto component manufacturer BorgWarner on September 21, 2022 inaugurated another plant in Thiruvallur District near Chennai, Tamil Nadu, which provides extensive manufacturing, assembly and storage space. Having two sites operating in close proximity is expected to increase production efficiency and strengthen the company's position in the region.

Assembly of BorgWarner’s high-performance engine control and variable camshaft timing (VCT) systems will be centralised in the new facility, which will also provide space for warehousing and shipping. BorgWarner's VCT technology optimises efficiency and contributes to reducing emissions in combustion-powered vehicles – a further step on the company’s path toward cleaner and more sustainable mobility.  

Pei Wang, Vice President and General Manager Asia, BorgWarner Morse Systems, said, "The current expansion was necessary; we needed the extra space to meet our increasing customer demand in India as a major local manufacturer. Having the two plants in the same area enables us to optimize logistics and improve our supply chain. Furthermore, the expansion highlights our role as an important regional employer.”

With the opening of this plant, BorgWarner is ideally positioned to meet the ever-growing business needs of the automotive industry, not only in India but also in the entire Asian market. BorgWarner believes this expansion will significantly increase the localised sourcing and manufacturing setup to deliver the competitive edge in the Indian market. BorgWarner anticipates that operations will take place across a total area of more than 83,600 sq ft, enabling further expansion of manufacturing capacities and the creation of additional jobs in the region.
