"Around the world, BorgWarner is building new manufacturing facilities to deliver technologies engineered to improve fuel economy, emissions and performance. Expanding the Powertrain Technical Center in Michigan will help us accelerate innovation for current and future programs," said Christopher Thomas, vice president and chief technology officer, BorgWarner, and leader of the Powertrain Technical Center in Auburn Hills. "With cooperation and incentives from local and state governments, BorgWarner is pleased to continue investing in Michigan and participate in driving the automotive industry — and the local economy — forward."

Opened in 2002, the BorgWarner Powertrain Technical Center unified the company’s diverse businesses into a "powertrain powerhouse," accommodating engineering, research and development, sales and marketing for each group. According to the company, the work environment reflects BorgWarner’s commitment to innovation through collaboration. Earlier this year, the company completed a new engineering garage and vehicle test lab at the technical center.

In 2005, BorgWarner also moved its world headquarters from Chicago to Auburn Hills.
