Briggs & Stratton focusing on healthy initiative

As part of Briggs & Stratton's company-wide sustainability initiative, the corporation invited the Mainstreet Farmers Market Friday to its manufacturing plant located in Gateway Industrial Park. The Market served as the culmination of the Statesboro plant's first Sustainability Week, which was designed to provide employees information regarding different ways to care for the planet. "Our company has had sustainability awareness weeks at the corporate level for the last few years," said Steve Holmes, a Statesboro-based environmental manager for the company.
