Auto components India - - NEWS - ACI

BorgWarner, a global prod­uct leader in clean and ef­fi­cient tech­nol­ogy so­lu­tions for com­bus­tion, hy­brid and elec­tric ve­hi­cles, has opened its ex­panded fa­cil­ity in Kakkalur, in Tiru­val­lur dis­trict, about 30 km from Chennai, Tamil Nadu. With its leadingedge pro­duc­tion line for ad­vanced en­gine tim­ing and vari­able cam tim­ing (VCT) sys­tems, the ex­panded plant meets the in­creas­ing de­mand on the steadily grow­ing In­dian au­to­mo­tive mar­ket, meet­ing BS VI norms, while pre­par­ing to sup­ply the grow­ing South­east Asian au­to­mo­tive mar­ket.

With a to­tal area of 43,300 sqft (4,023 square me­ters), the fa­cil­ity now in­cludes en­gi­neer­ing, man­u­fac­tur­ing and of­fice ar­eas as well as ware­house space. BorgWarner’s ex­panded fa­cil­ity pro­vides class-lead­ing de­sign, sim­u­la­tion, test­ing and man­u­fac­tur­ing ca­pa­bil­i­ties. A highly-skilled in­house en­gi­neer­ing team sup­ports cus­tomers from ini­tial de­sign through pro­duc­tion, en­abling the pro­duc­tion of op­ti­mised, high­per­for­mance en­gine tim­ing and VCT sys­tems. In the newly-built area of the plant, BorgWarner will be­gin a new pro­duc­tion line for the com­pany’s VCT tech­nol­ogy to help ve­hi­cle man­u­fac­tur­ers im­prove fuel econ­omy, re­li­a­bil­ity and en­gine ef­fi­ciency. BorgWarner has man­u­fac­tur­ing and tech­ni­cal fa­cil­i­ties in 66 lo­ca­tions in 18 coun­tries and em­ploys ap­prox­i­mately 29,000 per­sons world­wide.
