BorgWarner Inc. is an American automotive supplier headquartered in Auburn Hills, Michigan. The company maintains production facilities and technical systems at 93 sites (as of June 6, 2022) in 22 countries worldwide and has around 49,000 employees.[5] BorgWarner is one of the 25 largest automotive suppliers in the world.[6] Frédéric Lissalde has been CEO of BorgWarner Inc. since August 1, 2018.[7]

The company was formed in 1928 as Borg-Warner Corporation. It was formed as a fusion of companies including Borg & Beck, Marvel-Schebler, Warner Gear and Mechanics Universal Joint. In 1987, Borg-Warner Corporation ceased to exist as a result of a series of complex financial transactions, although a new company of the same name (still Borg-Warner Corporation) continued the business. At the same time, Borg-Warner Automotive Inc. was created as a subsidiary of the new company; the mother company, the new Borg-Warner Corporation, was later known as Borg-Warner Security Corporation. In 1993, Borg-Warner Automotive Inc. was spun-off from Borg-Warner Security Corporation and became an independent company [note 1]. In 2005, BorgWarner's world headquarters was moved from Chicago to the metro Detroit area. Over the years, BorgWarner has bought many other automotive companies that have become part of BorgWarner, giving BorgWarner a very wide (as in large) pedigree in the automotive world.

BorgWarner is currently developing and working on clean and efficient future technologies for all types of propulsion: combustion engine, hybrid vehicle and electric vehicle. Recent acquisition of Delphi Technologies, Akasol and Santroll strengthen BorgWarner’s electric vehicle product portfolio.

BorgWarner has close links with the Indianapolis 500. As the sole turbocharger supplier for the NTT INDYCAR SERIES, BorgWarner’s EFR (Engineered for Racing) turbocharger has been fitted in all participating vehicles in each season since 2012.[8] Since 1936, the company has also appeared as the sponsor of the Borg-Warner Trophy, which serves as an annual prize for the winner of the Indianapolis 500.[9]

In 2017, the supplier became a partner of the SOS Children’s Villages.[10]
