AUBURN HILLS, Mich., Sept. 17, 2013

AUBURN HILLS, Mich., Sept. 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --BorgWarner is building a
new manufacturing facility in the industrial zone of Lanheses, Viana do
Castelo, Portugal, about 31 miles (50 km) from its currently rented site in
Valenca. Construction began in August 2013 and is expected to be completed in
2014. BorgWarner's new larger state-of-the-art building comprises 160,000
square feet (15,000 square meters) of manufacturing space, with adjacent room
for future expansion. Expanded production capacity will allow BorgWarner to
efficiently serve customers with several environmentally friendly technologies
such as exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) coolers and EGR tubes as well as glow
plug control modules, all key technologies for modern engines aimed at
reducing emissions. BorgWarner expects the global EGR systems market to grow
from 21.2 million units in 2013 to 33.3 million units by 2018.

"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 need for advanced diesel
cold-start technologies is a further driver of our business, especially in
Europe, where Euro 6 emissions regulations take effect in 2014."

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 technologies currently produced at the Valenca
plant. The company plans to gradually transfer current production to Viana do
Castelo with completion by early 2015.
