BorgWarner opens new technical center and production plant in Poland

BorgWarner has expanded its campus in the Podkarpackie Science and Technology Park in Rzeszów, Poland, with a new production plant and engineering center.
The 78,500-square-foot (7,300-square-meter) production plant produces advanced chain-driven engine timing systems, including variable cam timing technologies, and provides expanded capacity for transmission components. Covering more than 72,000 square feet (6,700 square meters), the technical center provides capabilities for application engineering and research and development to create new technologies designed to improve fuel economy and reduce emissions while enhancing performance. Production for several major European car manufacturers began recently.
“Our continued investments in Poland strengthen BorgWarner’s market position throughout Europe,” said James R. Verrier, president and CEO, BorgWarner. “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 localized production.”
The new plant is BorgWarner’s second manufacturing facility in Europe producing advanced chain-driven engine timing systems. The plant also manufactures transmission components, expanding capacity in Europe.
The new technical center provides application engineering and design, simulation, testing and validation as well as material labs and vehicle workshops.
