BorgWarner Opens Turbocharger Plant in Mexico
The Ford F-150 pickup truck equipped with the EcoBoost engine has been a sales success and the benefits extend beyond the automaker's coffers. BorgWarner, which produces the turbochargers fitted into the new 3.5-liter EcoBoost engine, has just announced the launch of a new plant in Ramos, Mexico to keep up with the demand.
"Gasoline and diesel turbocharged engines are key technologies included in every major carmaker's future plans in North America, making it the fastest growing turbocharger market in the world," said Frederic Lissalde, President and General Manager, BorgWarner Turbo Systems Passenger Car Products. "Our new plant in Ramos is strategically located to meet growing customer demand through local production supported by our global resources. We look forward to bringing the benefits of improved fuel economy, powerful performance and reduced emissions to drivers throughout North America."
BorgWarner will hire close to 200 employees for the new plant, which is located close to Monterrey, Mexico.
