The technical center consolidated the company’s central Indiana operations that were previously performed in two separate facilities by combining research and development, testing, prototype building, engineering and design work.

In May 2017, the Noblesville Common Council approved an incentive plan costs associated with utilities and land acquisition. BorgWarner invested approximately $28 million for new site.

The technical center is approximately 100,000 square feet. The company says it will create 23 new, high-wage jobs, to meet an increased demand for its propulsion systems for hybrid and electric vehicles.

At the meeting, Indiana Economic Development Corp. President Elaine Bedel, along with city officials and State Reps. Todd Huston and Jim Merritt spoke at the ceremony.
