Briggs & Stratton Corp. recently acquired the assets of Ground Logic Inc. of Lincoln, Neb., a designer and manufacturer of premium stand-on commercial spreaders and spreader/sprayers for fertilizer and pesticide-herbicide lawn applications on mid- to large-sized residential and commercial properties.

"This acquisition supports Briggs & Stratton's strategy to 'fill out the trailer' of the commercial lawn and turf professional, with highly-regarded products that are built to stand up to the toughest working demands," said Harold Redman, senior vice president and group president - Turf & Consumer Products, Briggs & Stratton. "We will be able to use our industry-leading global distribution network to accelerate growth and are eager to add these products to our portfolio of outdoor power equipment to help commercial business owners get the job done."

Briggs & Stratton financed the transaction from cash on hand. It expects that the acquisition will not have a material effect on fiscal 2018 earnings or cash flows. The company said the acquisition supports growth in the attractive lawn and turf market and also brings innovative technology to the company.
