Wauwatosa-based Briggs & Stratton Corp. plans to open a warehouse and distribution facility in Glendale.
The international small engine manufacturer’s warehouse would be located at 4353 N. Richards St. The lease proposal was approved at the Glendale Plan Commission meeting Monday night.
The 220,000-square-foot multi-tenant industrial space was formerly occupied by Fashion Angels Enterprises Inc. until that company moved to the Third Ward in 2013. It was then purchased by Phoenix Broadway LLC, part of Milwaukee-based Phoenix Investors, and renovated in 2013 and 2014.
Briggs makes air-cooled gas engines for outdoor power equipment, including lawnmowers. Its worldwide distribution center is in Menomonee Falls.
