Bosch Mahle Turbo Systems starts subsidiary in China

Bosch Mahle Turbo Systems (BMTS) has founded a wholly owned subsidiary in China, responding to the continued market growth of turbocharged gasoline engines in the country.
The headquarters of the company, which is operating under the name Bosch Mahle Turbo Systems (Shanghai), are currently being built on the Mahle premises in Shanghai. Initially, mainly turbochargers for gasoline engines with swept volumes ranging from 1 to 1.5 liters will be produced for the local Chinese market in a new building comprising 5,000 square meters.
The installed production capacity is reported to amount to more than one million turbochargers per year, with the start of series production scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2014. So far, three customer projects have been acquired.
According to BMTS, the facility’s new machinery will be fitted with high-precision equipment so that local production process steps can be adopted, with about 100 new employees to be trained for this purpose at the company’s main locations in Austria and Germany.
Furthermore, there will be a research and development center, which will have access to Mahle’s existing engine test benches and laboratory facilities. Hot gas test benches will also be available at the new location. Another feature of the production at BMTS is the integration of an end-of-line test in the assembly, where the turbocharger will be checked for functionality, internal and external leak tightness, correct assembly, and a potential out-of-balance.
