BorgWarner Inc., headquartered in Michigan, USA, has inaugurated a new manufacturing facility for its turbochargers in Rayong, Thailand. The 6,500 m2 facility is designed to meet increasing demand for turbocharging technologies in the Southeast Asian market.

Robin Kendrick, President and General Manager, BorgWarner Turbo Systems, stated, “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 localised manufacturing to meet their thriving demand while strengthening our leadership position.”

Using the experience gained in its other production plants, the latest BorgWarner facility is said to have been designed following lean production principles, making the flow of people and materials along the production line clear and efficient. Production will takes place in a clean environment with an over-pressurised and air-conditioned airlock-enclosed shop floor to keep out any particles which might interfere with production processes.
