Milwaukee-based Briggs and Stratton is moving several production lines from its factory in Wauwatosa to New York.
It’s not clear how many workers might be affected. The Wauwatosa facility will continue to build standby generators and engine components. Production of lawn tractor, residential zero-turn mower, snow thrower and pressure washer products will be moved at the end of August. Briggs and Stratton reported a 145-million-dollar loss in the fiscal quarter that ended in March.
