As part of an earlier announcement to move certain production work from the Briggs & Stratton plant in Wisconsin to New York, in early July the company cut more than 200 jobs. According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Briggs filed notice with the Wisconsin state Department of Workforce Development, saying 208 layoffs will take place near the end of August, when production is scheduled to cease, and that more people will lose their jobs at the plant, near the end of October and December when the facility will be completely shuttered.
