BorgWarner is a U.S. automotive parts supplier, known for its automatic transmissions and transmission components, (e.g., electro-hydraulic control components, Transmission Control Units, friction materials, and one-way clutches), turbo chargers, engine valve timing system components, and 4-wheel drive system components. The company has manufacturing facilities in the U.S., Europe, and Asia, and provides highly engineered drivetrain component solutions to all three U.S. automakers as well as a variety of European and Asian customers.

The company is also notable for co-developing the first major non-diesel application of a variable geometry turbocharger with Porsche, the Variable Turbine Geometry (VTG) system, used in the 2006 911 Turbo. BorgWarner claims this technology will reach mainstream cars within 10 years. [1]

The company is based in Auburn Hills, Michigan. Robert S. Ingersoll formerly served as the company's CEO and Chairman.

The trophy given to the winner of the Indianapolis 500 each year is called the BorgWarner Trophy, named after the company.
