Magna celebrates the supply of five million transfer cases to BMW Group

Magna has supplied five million Actimax transfer cases to BMW Group

Magna International has now supplied five million Actimax transfer cases to BMW Group. The automotive supplier has been providing BMW with drive systems since 2003, including the Actimax transfer case, which powers the all-wheel-drive in nearly all BMW xDrive models. The transfer case is manufactured in Ilz and Lannach, Austria, as well as in Ramos Arizpe, Mexico.

“We are proud of the entire team’s commitment as well as the trust that BMW Group has placed in us and our innovative powertrain solutions,” stated Jake Hirsch, President of Magna Powertrain. “Milestones such as this demonstrate Magna’s global leadership position in developing and producing all-wheel drive and four-wheel drive systems.”

Through its powertrain operating unit, Magna is the largest independent 4WD/AWD supplier globally with 29% of an $8.2-billion consolidated market. All-wheel drive (AWD) technology, which was once limited to off-road vehicles, is now being used in almost all vehicle segments, including compact cars.
