Briggs & Stratton held a ribbon-cutting ceremony at its Poplar Bluff, MO facility, where it manufactures small engines for the outdoor power equipment industry. Significant investments have been made at the site over 18 months to consolidate operations into a single factory and to set the stage for new OHV engine designs.

Plant Manager Mark Melloy said the work positions the plant for the launch of new innovative engine platforms and produces existing engine platforms on two reconditioned, reconfigured assembly lines.

"This poises us well for the future in producing highly innovative engines for our OEM’s," Melloy said.

The ribbon-cutting was attended by Briggs & Stratton Chairman, President, and CEO Todd Teske; Sr. Vice President and President, Engines Group, Joe Wright; Plant Manager Mark Melloy; employees at the Poplar Bluff facility; Ed DeGaris, Poplar Bluff City Mayor; Steve Halter, President Poplar Bluff Chamber of Commerce; and others.

Briggs & Stratton Corp. is headquartered in Milwaukee, WI, and is the world’s largest producer of gasoline engines for outdoor power equipment.

The company also serves as an OEM, making portable generators and pressure washers under the Briggs & Stratton name. It makes lawn and garden, turf care and other outdoor power equipment through several brand names, including Simplicity, Snapper, Snapper Pro, Ferris, Murray, Branco, and Victa.
