BorgWarner inaugurates new plant in Poland
Components and systems supplier BorgWarner has increased its presence in Europe with a new manufacturing facility and technical centre in the Podkarpackie Science and Technology Park in Rzeszów, southeastern Poland. The facility, which spans over 14,000sqm, will manufacture chain-driven engine timing systems, variable cam timing technologies and provide expanded capacity for its transmission components. The technical centre is capable of application engineering and research and development with an aim to improve fuel economy and reduce emissions while enhancing performance says the company.
"The demand for our fuel-efficient technologies is likely to increase within the next few years, especially in Europe where Euro 6 emissions regulations take effect in 2014. The infrastructure of the Rzeszów area gives us the opportunity to meet growing customer demand through localised production," said James R Verrier, President and Chief Executive Officer, BorgWarner.
In addition to the Poland facility, BorgWarner is also building a 15,000sqm manufacturing unit in Portugal which will manufacture EGR coolers, EGR tubes and glow plug control modules. The company expects the global EGR systems market to grow from 21.2 million units in 2013 to 33.3 million units by 2018.
