Borg Warner Automotive
Workers Exposed to Asbestos
As a result of several companies merging together, BorgWarner was founded in 1928 as a producer and distributor of automotive parts. The company continued to expand, even if in the 1970’s some subsidiaries started to branch off, arriving today to conduct its operations in 19 countries. BorgWarner, as a manufacturer of automotive parts, used asbestos for its friction products. This poisonous mineral was included in the production process from the early 1960’s to the 1980’s.
