BorgWarner has plans to upgrade three plants in Michigan, as well as build a new electric vehicle (EV) battery service center. The company’s $20 million investment will be used to increase and improve the manufacturing of battery modules and packs, direct current (DC) fast charging equipment, and microgrid control and operations. The project, which is partially funded by a $1.86 million grant from the Michigan Economic Development Corporation (MEDC) through its Michigan Business Development Program (MBDP), will create 186 jobs.
In a recent quote, Frédéric Lissalde, President and CEO of BorgWarner, said, “This is a significant investment for our company as we continue to charge forward with our electrification strategy. We are grateful to receive this grant from the MEDC as we continue to expand upon and grow our EV offerings. On top of creating more pathway jobs in the community to improve the quality of life for local residents, we intend to use the grant to expand BorgWarner’s manufacturing capability and presence, enhance volume capacity and grow our cross-functional departments.”
