BorgWarner expands manufacturing facility in Mexico

BorgWarner expanded its manufacturing facility at its campus in Ramos-Arizpe, Mexico, to meet increasing demand for emissions technologies in North America.

The facility will produce exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) modules, ignition coils and coolant control valves for gasoline- and diesel-powered passenger cars, minivans and light-duty trucks.

The expansion will increase capacity for current products as well as BorgWarner’s latest advancements in emissions technologies. BorgWarner expects to create approximately 350 new manufacturing jobs at the facility over the next two years.

“BorgWarner’s advanced emissions and ignition technologies help automakers meet stringent emissions standards while improving fuel economy and engine performance,” said Brady Ericson, president and general manager, BorgWarner Emissions Systems.

“Our expansion in Mexico complements our recent multimillion-dollar investment in Dixon, Illinois. It is an important part of our overall growth and consolidation strategy aimed at serving our customers’ growing needs.”

BorgWarner’s gasoline EGR technologies help automakers reduce fuel consumption by recirculating and cooling exhaust gases to reduce combustion temperatures in the engine. An Automotive News 2015 PACE Award finalist, BorgWarner’s new EGR module is the first designed specifically for gasoline engines. With an integrated EGR cooler and valve, it provides improved packaging, reliability, response and efficiency to optimize exhaust gas recirculation.

To improve engine performance, fuel economy and emissions, BorgWarner’s compact ignition coil technology facilitates more complete combustion, delivers more ignition energy and generates higher voltage than conventional plug top or pencil ignition coils. Featuring a compact design, BorgWarner’s coolant control valves help optimize engine temperature to improve efficiency and reduce emissions.
