History

Wisconsin Engineering is an OEM of tractors, mowers, and outdoor power equipment with manufacturing roots going back over 100 years. Here′s more about who we are and where we come from.


Wisconsin Engineering was founded in 1991 as an engineering design office, in Sheboygan, Wisconsin. We developed outdoor power equipment machinery (OPE) and offered consulting services to leading OPE and small engine manufacturers. Wisconsin Engineering reached an agreement with several world-renown manufacturer of lawn mowers to offer Wisconsin Engineering-built machines as the flagship of their European product range.

In 1998, Wisconsin Engineering purchased part of the former Agrostroj Prostejov in the Czech Republic to manufacture this and several other products subsequently sold under some of the most prestigious brand brands in the industry.
