BorgWarner expands business in agricultural, construction market

ABR Staff Writer Published 07 January 2011

BorgWarner has expanded its business in the agricultural and construction market with the launch of new friction plates for John Deere and CNH America, with total volumes of nearly two million parts a year.

The new friction plates are used in transmissions, differentials, power take-off units and wet brakes for drive axles on vehicles such as tractors, combines and front-end loaders.

BorgWarner Drivetrain Systems president and general manager John Sanderson said driven by demand for their advanced technologies, they anticipate more than 50% growth in its friction products for the agricultural and construction market during the next five years.

"BorgWarner delivers custom engineering support for almost any application and our innovative materials, groove patterns and finishing techniques are once again setting new standards in performance and durability," Sanderson said.

The company has developed new high-static coefficient friction materials, to address the specific performance requirements of the agricultural and construction market.

Auburn Hills, Michigan-based BorgWarner is a provider of highly engineered components and systems for vehicle powertrain applications worldwide.
