Posted on January 20, 2006

Briggs & Stratton Corp. said it is cutting up to 175 salaried jobs. Briggs said it will cut between 6% and 8% of its salaried work force by February 15, resulting in $10 million to $15 million in annual savings starting in fiscal 2007, the Milwaukee-based engine manufacturer said. Briggs has 2200 salaried workers worldwide.

Briggs said the job eliminations are necessary to realign the company in the wake of acquisitions and streamlined operations.
