BorgWarner Expands Auburn Hills-Dearborn-Hazel Park, Michigan, Operations

BorgWarner, a global provider of sustainable mobility solutions for the automotive market, plans to expand operations in Auburn Hills, Dearborn, and Hazel Park, Michigan. The $20.6 million project is expected to create 186 jobs.

The company will accelerate its electric vehicle product development and testing, including battery modules, battery packs, and DC fast chargers; as well as scale up its DC fast charging manufacturing operations. The investment also includes an expansion at a fourth, yet-to-be-determined location across Oakland and Wayne counties.

“BorgWarner is pleased to continue to invest in the State of Michigan with the support of MEDC, growing our fast charging and battery capabilities to support the evolution to electrification,” said BorgWarner President and Chief Executive Officer Frédéric B. Lissalde.

The project is being supported by a $1.86 million Michigan Business Development Program performance-based grant.

“Borg Warner’s continued commitment to and expansion in Oakland County is such welcome news for Auburn Hills and Hazel Park, where the company will accelerate its investment in the fast-growing EV market,” noted Oakland County Executive Dave Coulter. “The venture will benefit the local economy, the additional 100-plus workers at the facilities and the environment as Borg Warner gets closer to its carbon neutrality goals.”
