LANSING — An expansion in Auburn Hills by the auto supplier BorgWarner will get state financial support.
BorgWarner is planning to expand its existing operations in the Oakland County community, investing $27 million in new plant and equipment and creating 76 new jobs.
As a result, the Michigan Strategic Fund board approved a $750,000 Michigan Business Development Program performance-based grant.
The new jobs will be in research and development of advanced electrification and clean mobility technologies. The R&D for this project will help automakers meet EPA standards.
Michigan was chosen for the project over several competing sites. The city of Auburn Hills is supporting the project with an eight-year property tax abatement.
