BorgWarner has in­au­gu­rated a Tur­bocharger pro­duc­tion fa­cil­ity in Ray­ong, Thai­land. With a to­tal area of 69,965 square feet, the fa­cil­ity in­cludes a lead­ing-edge pro­duc­tion line for ad­vanced tur­bocharg­ing solutions. BorgWarner has de­signed the plant to meet grow­ing de­mand in the ex­pand­ing South­east Asian au­to­mo­tive mar­ket along with global au­tomak­ers based in the re­gion.

“Thai­land is a very im­por­tant pro­duc­tion base for Asian au­tomak­ers and of­fers an ex­cel­lent busi­ness en­vi­ron­ment. Many lead­ing au­tomak­ers have pro­duc­tion fa­cil­i­ties in Thai­land. With our new fa­cil­ity in Ray­ong we serve them with lo­cal­ized man­u­fac­tur­ing to meet their thriv­ing de­mand while strength­en­ing our lead­er­ship po­si­tion,” Robin Ken­drick, Pres­i­dent and Gen­eral Man­ager, BorgWarner Turbo Sys­tems, said.

The lat­est BorgWarner fa­cil­ity was de­signed fol­low­ing lean pro­duc­tion prin­ci­ples, mak­ing the flow of peo­ple and ma­te­ri­als along the line clear and ef­fi­cient. Pro­duc­tion takes place in a clean en­vi­ron­ment with an over­pres­sur­ized and air-con­di­tioned air­lock­en­closed shop floor to keep out any par­ti­cles that might in­ter­fere with the pro­duc­tion pro­cesses.
