Over 200 hundred jobs could be coming to Southeast Missouri from Briggs and Stratton. This is because Briggs and Stratton is expanding their plant in Popular Bluff. The total cost of the investment is $15 million dollars. Officials say, they are certain they will hire 130 new jobs in Popular Bluff over the next 12 months. The money is expected to improve production and make the square footage more useable. The expansion in the area is taking effect because another plant is closing down in Kentucky.
