manufacturingWATER VALLEY — BorgWarner’s facilities in Water Valley; Frankfort, Illinois; and Ithaca, New York; have received 2014 Supplier Quality Excellence Awards from General Motors (GM).

Presented to only 17 percent of GM’s 2,300 suppliers in the United States and Canada, the award recognizes supplier manufacturing locations for achieving consistently high levels of quality based on 13 defined performance criteria. This is the second award received by BorgWarner’s Frankfort facility.

From its locations, BorgWarner supplies GM with HY-VO transmission chain (Ithaca), one-way clutches for the rear-wheel drive 6-speed automatic transmission family (Frankfort) and mini-direct acting variable force solenoids for global front-wheel drive 6-speed automatic transmissions (Water Valley). These components are used in a wide range of Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet and GMC vehicles.
