BorgWarner has opened a new plant in Oroszlany, Hungary, with production capacity for all-wheel drive components including transfer cases, feeder pumps, valves and AWD couplings to supply global automakers.
“Over the next few years, our plant will provide capacities that will allow us to meet growing customer demand with localised production,” said Stefan Demmerle, president and general manager, BorgWarner TorqTransfer Systems.
Located 76 kilometres from Budapest, the Oroszlany campus already produces turbochargers for petrol and diesel engines.
The energy efficient facility uses waste heat from air compressors and furnaces and will recycle rainwater for watering lawns as well as condensation wastewater. The building uses linear fluorescent lamps (LFLs) in most of the production and office areas and compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs) in the remaining facility to reduce energy consumption.
