Steven Briggs and Harry Stratton founded the Briggs & Stratton Corporation back in 1908. They stared as automotive company with the Briggs & Stratton Flyer.
From there, they went on to make small engines for washing machines and tillers. Then a decisive moment, it was 1953 and they introduced the lightweight aluminum engine which revolutionized the lawn and garden industry. It enabled just about anybody to afford these innovative lawn mowers, and everybody wanted one. The Briggs & Stratton name became an integral part of suburban life.
