BorgWarner (BWA) To Supply First Automotive Works

BorgWarner just announced that it has been selected to supply China’s First Automotive Works with its turbochargers and EGR valves. Under the agreement, Borgwarner will supply First Automotive Works with the products beginning in 2010. First Automotive Works will use the turbo-chargers in their new gasoline engines and the EGR valves in their diesel engines to help the company’s vehicles meet the new China 4 emissions standards.

In a press release, Roger Wood, President and General Manager, BorgWarner Turbo & Emissions Systems, commented on the news:

“In China, increasingly strict emissions legislation is driving the trend toward turbocharged gasoline engines with smaller displacement. Vehicles are more fuel efficient, more eco-friendly and more powerful. When it came to developing its new engines, FAW chose to rely on BorgWarner’s turbocharging and EGR expertise. Our new cooperation with FAW marks a continuation of BorgWarner’s expansion in Asia.”
