BorgWarner: People Creating Solutions and Products That Change the World.

BorgWarner amplifies how bold business impacts our landscape at the local and global pulse.  The company commits to creating solutions and products with the application of science and technologies, to support and promote a clean, energy-efficient world.  

“We’re constantly pursuing what is next,” says Dan Stewart, Director of Global Operations Engineering.  “Our proven track record has made us a propulsion system leader for combustion, hybrid and electric vehicles. We uncover strong trends and use smart science and technology to address a future based on varying regulations, consumer demands and automaker requirements.”

BorgWarner’s 100,000 square-foot technical center in Noblesville opened in June. This state-of-the-art facility now combines operations from the company’s facilities in Anderson and Pendleton.  Features of the center include a high capacity lab allowing a greater volume of research and development to meet the needs of its growing demand in building and testing electrified products.

When asked why Borg Warner chose Noblesville, Stewart replied, “We really liked the site we had picked, partially due to easy off, easy on location next to the interstate.”  Stewart added, “The location alone gave us visibility to the public, customers and potential new employees.”

Prior to selecting Noblesville for their site, BorgWarner’s overall analysis showed younger employees were already buying homes or renting in Noblesville and nearby.  Naturally, the company’s leadership translated this location as an asset for recruiting new talent and maintaining a workforce. Stewart said, “The City of Noblesville worked really hard with the people involved and developed a very competitive and attractive incentive package that created a win/win among BorgWarner, Noblesville, and Hagerman.”
