According to Laura Timms, public relations chief at the company's Milwaukee, Wisconsin global headquarters, we expect to be in the building(in Newbern,Tn) by June 2007 and production beginning in early fall. Other sources revealed that other new Briggs & Stratton plants started with about 100 employees(initially) and ramped up within a few years to count several hundred workers. Newbern is a small town located about 8 miles northeast of Dyersburg.

This is exciting news for the residents of Dyersburg,Newbern and all of Dyer County. This is the second plant to announce relocating here(in last 3 months). You will continue to see other plants and businesses relocate here because of the business climate here, availability of skilled labor, access to major highways, waterways and of course I155,I55,I40 and of course the new I69 coming right through Dyer County.

I will continue bringing late breaking news right here on this Dyersburg real estate blog. Please come back for more information as it relates to the Dyersburg,Tennessee real estate market.
