Drivetrain Group - The Drivetrain Group harnesses our 100-year legacy as an industry innovator in transmission and all-wheel drive technology.

The company reported record sales in 2011 of $7.11 billion in sales, up 26% from a year ago, and net income of $550.1 million.
“The fourth quarter was a strong finish to an exceptional year for our company,” said Timothy Manganello, Chairman and CEO of BorgWarner. “Our sales were up 16% in the fourth quarter of 2011 compared with fourth quarter 2010. Excluding the impact of currency and sales related to the acquisition of the Traction Systems division of Haldex, which closed in first quarter 2011, our sales were up 12%. Global vehicle production was up 1% during the same period. New business growth drove our fourth quarter results as it did throughout the year. Adoption rates of our leading-edge powertrain technology continued to outpace vehicle production in every major region of the world. The continued focus on execution at our operations resulted in a very strong operating income margin of 12.0% in the fourth quarter, excluding non-recurring items. This is sharply higher than the 10.3% operating income margin posted in the fourth quarter of 2010.”
