BorgWarner has announced that it will acquire Santroll Automotive Components, a carve-out of Santroll Electric Auto and Santroll Automotive Components’ eMotor business.
BorgWarner said that the acquisition is expected to strengthen its vertical integration, scale, and portfolio breadth in light vehicle e-motors while allowing for increased speed to market. Closing is expected in the late first quarter of 2022 and is subject to closing conditions.
Based in Tianjin, China, Santroll designs and manufactures hairpin and concentrated-winding technology eMotors for light vehicles and supplies its patented technology to the Chinese OEM market.
“The eMotor remains an important element of BorgWarner’s electric vehicle growth strategy,” said Frédéric Lissalde, President and CEO of BorgWarner.
