Briggs & Stratton Brand History

The year was 1908 and the industrial revolution was progressing quickly. Two entrepreneurs, Stephen Briggs and Harold Stratton had the idea to start a new gas-powered vehicle at the dawn of the automotive age.

Stephen Briggs, and electrical engineer, was the inventor while Harold Stratton, a grain merchant, was the investor.

These two started out manufacturing automobile parts, but in 1919 Briggs and Stratton was able to acquire the A.O Smith Motor Wheel, the predecessor to the stationary type “P” engine.

This development revolutionized the 4-cycle gasoline engine industry and set the course for Briggs & Stratton to become the world’s largest manufacturer of air cooled gasoline engines.

Today Briggs & Stratton offers its customers over 100 different models of engines ranging from 3.5 to 25 horsepower which can be serviced at more than 32,000 authorized service facilities in 102 countries. Briggs & Stratton has become a highly regarded brand name by producing high-quality, durable, reasonably priced products.
