BorgWarner has expanded its global capacity with a new production facility in Ramos, Mexico, that supports production of turbochargers for Ford’s 3.5-liter Ecoboost engine for rear-wheel drive cars and trucks. BorgWarner plans to employ more than 185 people at the plant, located near the city of Monterrey.

“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,” says Frederic Lissalde, president and general manager of BorgWarner Turbo Systems Passenger Car Products.

Lissalde says the new plant is located strategically to meet growing customer demand through local production supported by BorgWarner’s global resources. “We look forward to bringing the benefits of improved fuel economy, powerful performance and reduced emissions to drivers throughout North America,” he says.
