BorgWarner, headquartered in Auburn Hills, Michigan, USA, has opened a new production plant in the Caidian Economic Development Zone in Wuhan, China. The new 26,000 m2 facility will integrate production, engineering, quality, sales, logistics, administration and finance under one roof.

As part of its effort to support growing demand from the Chinese combustion, hybrid and electric vehicle market, BorgWarner stated that its new facility will produce drive motors, P2 motors, belt alternator starter systems, starters, alternators and related components.

Dr Stefan Demmerle, President and General Manager, BorgWarner PowerDrive Systems, stated, “This is a new milestone in BorgWarner’s history in China. The new plant will significantly improve our manufacturing capability in combustion, hybrid and electric vehicle products, underpinning our sustained growth in coming years.”

“Leveraging our leading technologies and system integration ability,” he added, “we will continue to meet growing demand from Chinese electric vehicle and hybrid electric vehicle customers with our localised production and engineering capability.”

Construction of the Wuhan plant began in 2016, one year after BorgWarner’s acquisition of automotive parts manufacturer Remy. The new facility integrates the former Wuhan Remy plant with nearby production sites, while adding new production lines. BorgWarner officially opened the plant during a ceremony attended by local government officials, customers, suppliers and media representatives.
