Briggs & Stratton to bring jobs to Statesboro plant


Officials of Briggs & Stratton, the Quick Start program and Ogeechee Technical College signed an agreement Tuesday for training more than 100 new employees Briggs’ Stateboro plant will hire as it begins building Vanguard V-Twin engines.

Briggs & Stratton Corporation, headquartered in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, announced in October that it will bring production of the two-cylinder engines home to its plants here and in Auburn, Alabama. Previously, these engines were assembled in Japan in a joint venture with Daihatsu.

In 22 years of previous operation, the Statesboro plant built only single-cylinder engines, and Briggs has projected its investment to renovate and equip the plant for the new line at $18 million. Click here to read the Statesboro Herald article.
