BorgWarner Morse Systems to expand Kakkalur plant
BorgWarner has announced the expansion of Kakkalur plant, which operates under the aegis of BorgWarner Morse Systems. Established as a joint venture manufacturing facility in 2002, the plant became a part of BorgWarner Morse Systems, a wholly owned BorgWarner entity in 2008. It is to meet the growing demand for engine timing components for passenger cars, light commercial vehicles and motorcycles, that the company is expanding the plant by 17,000 sq. ft. manufacturing and engineering space. The expansion is expected to take up to one year to complete. The BorgWarner products made at the Kakkalur plant, include silent and roller chains, tensioners, arms and guides as well as phasers and controls to support variable valve timing applications among others.
