BorgWarner finalizes acquisition of EGR company Gustav Wahler

Global powertrain supplier BorgWarner finalized its acquisition of Gustav Wahler GmbH & Co. KG. A producer of exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) valves and tubes as well as engine thermostats for both on- and off-road applications, Wahler’s customers include leading automotive manufacturers from around the world.

BorgWarner announced the acquisition of all shares in Wahler on December 20, 2013. Wahler will join the BorgWarner Emissions Systems business. BorgWarner will maintain the Wahler name as a product brand in the aftermarket.

The addition of Wahler complements our current EGR valve, cooler and tube technologies while expanding BorgWarner’s product portfolio to include thermostats. With its global locations, the acquisition strengthens our product leadership position and enhances our ability to offer customers advanced technologies with localized manufacturing. As emissions regulations become more stringent and drivers require more fuel economy, demand for EGR technologies is expected to continue to grow.

—James R. Verrier, President and CEO, BorgWarner

Im 2010, BorgWarner acquired Dytech ENSA SL, a 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. (Earlier post.)
