BorgWarner Inc. is providing more details on its previously-announced layoffs at one of its plants in Kokomo, which is slated for closure.

In a notice to the state, the automotive components supplier headquartered in Auburn Hills, Michigan said 11 more employees are being let go as part of the first round of layoffs, bringing the total to 93.

BorgWarner said in August it was closing the Morgan Street Production Plant in Kokomo, which will ultimately affect some 150 employees. A second phase of layoffs is expected to begin in mid-2024.

The company told IIB when the original announcement was made that it is providing the affected workers with assistance in looking for new employment.

Additionally, 110 contracted workers from Burton, Michigan-based validation testing services company Trialon Corp. have been laid off due to the closure.

The closure is not expected to affect the Kokomo Technical Center, which BorgWarner took over along with the Morgan Street plant as part of its $3.3 billion acquisition of Delphi Technologies in 2020.

BorgWarner also operates the Noblesville Technical Center, which opened in 2018 and consolidated the company’s operations from its former facilities in Anderson and Pendleton.

The company employs about 38,000 people around the world, including 985 in Indiana.
