BorgWarner is building new manufacturing facility in Portugal

BorgWarner is building a new manufacturing facility in the industrial zone of Lanheses, Viana do Castelo, Portugal. Construction began in August 2013 and is expected to be completed in 2014. BorgWarner's new larger state-of-the-art building comprises 160,000 square feet of manufacturing space, with adjacent room for future expansion. Expanded production capacity will allow BorgWarner to efficiently serve customers with several environmentally friendly technologies such as exhaust gas recirculation coolers and EGR tubes as well as glow plug control modules, all key technologies for modern engines aimed at reducing emissions. BorgWarner expects the global EGR systems market to grow from 21.2 million units in 2013 to 33.3 million units by 2018.
