BorgWarner—the American automotive supplier based in Auburn Hills, Michigan—has announced its plan to invest $42 million into the expansion of its Seneca, South Carolina, production facility. The investment will be allocated for the development of new manufacturing lines to launch the production of 3GWh of annual battery module capacity, contributing to the growth of the company’s battery module and pack production in the US.
Over the course of three years, the expansion is expected to create approximately 122 jobs, including production, technical support, manufacturing, engineering, maintenance, and supporting function positions. To aid in the expansion, BorgWarner is working closely with the State of South Carolina and Oconee County. Development of the facility is slated to begin in the second quarter of 2023, with an expected completion date in the first half of 2024.
