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.
