BorgWarner Buys Dytech ENSA
BorgWarner has acquired Spanish Dytech ENSA SL producer of exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) coolers, EGR tubes, and integrated EGR modules including valves for automotive and commercial vehicle applications, both on- and off-road.Cooled EGR helps reduce NOx and particulate matter emissions in diesel and gasoline-direct injection (GDI) engines. The combination of ENSA's EGR cooler technology with BorgWarner's EGR valve and controls expertise will allow BorgWarner to offer customers complete system solutions, such as an integrated EGR valve, cooler, by-pass valve, and tubes, in one package.
Dytech’s technologies bolster BorgWarner’s existing portfolio of engine air management components. The products cut down toxic emissions from diesel and gasoline direct-injection engines. The technology is expected to be a key enabler for manufacturers to meet more strict emissions requirements imposed by European and U.S. regulators.
With locations in Spain, Portugal and India, Dytech ENSA employs approximately 1,000 people and supplies customers such as Renault/Nissan, VW/Audi, Ford, Fiat, Navistar, GM, Daimler, PSA, Suzuki, Mahindra & Mahindra, TATA, Ashok Leyland, MAN, and IVECO. Dytech ENSA's annual sales for 2009 were approximately $180 million. Terms were not disclosed.
