BorgWarner is building a new, larger production facility in Portugal to provide customers with several environmentally friendly emissions and diesel cold-start technologies.

A new BorgWarner manufacturing facility is under construction in the zone of Lanheses, Viana do Castelo, Portugal. The new facility is 31 mi (50 km) away from the facility it currently rents in Valença. Construction began this August, and is expected to be completed in 2014. The new building will have 160,000 ft² (15,000 m²) of manufacturing space, with room for future expansion. “Our investments in Portugal will enable BorgWarner to strengthen its market-leading position in EGR technologies in Europe and meet growing demand with several EGR products for both passenger cars and commercial diesel vehicles,” said Brady Ericson, President and General Manager, BorgWarner BERU Systems and BorgWarner Emissions Systems. The construction of its new plant in Portugal is part of BorgWarner’s strategy to expand production of its diesel cold-start technologies while meeting growing demand for the EGR products currently produced at the Valença plant. BorgWarner plans to gradually transfer current production to Viana do Castelo with completion by early 2015.
