Chennai: BorgWarner Thermal Systems, a designer and supplier of components and systems for thermal management, recently opened a new manufacturing facility near Chennai, India.

The plant has been set up at an investment of Rs. 30 crore on 6.3 acres at the SIPCOT Industrial Park at Sriperumbudur near here. The new facility will manufacture viscous fan drives, fans and some other thermal management products. It will have capacity to make 300,000 assemblies a year.

"In India, growing demand for mobility and adoption of global emissions standards is driving growth for BorgWarner's advanced technologies," said Dan CasaSanta, President and General Manager, BorgWarner Thermal Systems. "With our new facility, BorgWarner will have the ability to expand existing product lines and introduce new technologies and products."

BorgWarner Thermal Systems in India produces viscous fans and fan drives for customers including Tata Motors, Tata Cummins, Ashok Leyland, Mahindra & Mahindra, and others. The company will also consider exporting from this new facility.

The environmentally friendly building will provide manufacturing, engineering, sales, and administrative space as well as room for future expansion. Designed as a "green building," the facility is seeking silver certification under the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) rating system, a set of standards for environmentally sustainable construction developed by the U.S. Green Building Council. Over 30% of the grounds around the new facility are reserved for green space and shaded with trees and plants watered with recycled waste water. In addition, several water- and energy-saving devices have been installed throughout the building.

The company's current turnover in India is nearly Rs. 49 crore and this is expected to touch Rs. 65 crore this year. BorgWarner Cooling Systems India (P) Ltd hopes to double its sales by 2014.
