DETROIT -- BorgWarner Inc. said today it sold its tire pressure monitoring business to Germany-based Huf Electronics GmbH.
Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed and the transaction is subject to regulatory approvals. The deal includes a plant in Bretten, Germany, that employs about 230 people.
