Briggs To Invest In Alabama Plant

In Briggs & Stratton LLC’s first significant capital project under the company’s new ownership, the manufacturer will invest $9.4 million in new equipment and add 34 employees at its complex in Auburn, Ala., where the company produces its V-twin Vanguard brand engines. In October 2017, Briggs announced that it would relocate production of the engines from a joint venture partnership in Japan to Briggs plants in Auburn and in Statesboro, Ga.

The new equipment will support new and updated manufacturing machinery and processes and quality improvements as well as an additional assembly line. The Auburn City Council approved abatements on local taxes to defray the company’s costs.
