BorgWarner Inc was incorporated in 1987. The Company is a supplier of engineered automotive systems and components for powertrain applications. Its products help improve vehicle performance, fuel efficiency, stability and air quality. These products are manufactured and sold to original equipment manufacturers ("OEMs") of light vehicles (passenger cars, sport-utility vehicles, vans and light trucks). The Company's products are also sold to other OEMs of commercial vehicles (medium-duty trucks, heavy-duty trucks and buses) and off-highway vehicles (agricultural and construction machinery and marine applications). It also manufactures and sells its products to certain Tier One vehicle systems suppliers and into the aftermarket for light, commercial and off-highway vehicles. The Company operates manufacturing facilities serving customers in the Americas, Europe and Asia and is an original equipment supplier to every automotive OEM. Its segments include Engine and Drivetrain. The Engine Segment develops and manufactures products to improve fuel economy, reduce emissions and enhance performance. Increasingly stringent regulation of, and consumer demand for, fuel economy and emissions performance are driving demand for the Engine Segment's products in gasoline and diesel engines and alternative powertrains. The Engine Segment's products include: turbochargers, timing systems, emissions systems, thermal systems, thermostats, diesel cold start and gasoline ignition technology. This segment provides turbochargers for light, commercial and off-highway applications for diesel and gasoline engine manufacturers in the Americas, Europe and Asia. This segment also designs and manufactures turbo actuators using integrated electronics to precisely control turbocharger speed and pressure ratio. The Engine Segment also supplies turbochargers to several commercial vehicle and off-highway OEMs including Caterpillar, Daimler, Deutz, John Deere, MAN and Navistar. The Drivetrain Segment develops and manufactures products for automatic transmissions and all-wheel drive vehicles. Precise controls, response times and minimal parasitic losses, all of which improve fuel economy and vehicle performance, are the core design features of the Drivetrain Segment's product portfolio. This segment's products include friction, mechanical and controls products for automatic transmissions and torque management products for AWD vehicles. The Company uses a variety of raw materials in the production of its automotive products including steel, aluminum, copper, nickel, plastic resins and certain alloy elements. The Company currently supplies light vehicle turbochargers to many OEMs including BMW, Daimler, Fiat, Ford, General Motors, Great Wall, Hyundai, Renault, Volkswagen and Volvo. Its competitors include IHI, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, T.RAD, Pierburg, NGK, Schaeffler Group, Tsubaki Group, Usui, Xuelong, JTEKT, Magna Powertrain, FCC, Schaeffler Group.
