How Our Engines Are Made

Vanguard v-twin engines are made in our own Briggs & Stratton manufacturing plants right here in the USA.* The unique Vanguard Manufacturing System demonstrates our personal commitment to quality from start to finish. Each part of our manufacturing process is designed for extreme precision, accuracy and quality control. We call it the 3 Ps. And it’s why you can be confident that Vanguard engines and batteries deliver the rugged reliability and exceptional performance you expect from our brand.


Engine parts are made at Vanguard's own advanced-level casting plant using the very latest precision casting technology to ensure they meet the tightest tolerances. Parts are then shipped to our state-of-the-art machining plants equipped with automated German LiCON machining equipment.


Assembly of Vanguard power solutions is led by Certified Briggs & Stratton Master Service Technicians (MSTs) who have achieved the highest rating in B&S Global Service Training for their craftsman-like approach, attention to detail and accuracy. They assemble each engine using unique systems and technologies designed to ensure extreme accuracy.


The result of the Vanguard Manufacturing System is world-class products that are ready to go to work for you right from the plant. Because of the level of reliability and durability they deliver, we back each product with a warranty that is unmatched in the industry.
