Oshkosh Corporation (NYSEOSK), formerly Oshkosh Truck, designs and builds specialty trucks and truck bodies and access equipment. Based in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, the company employs 12,300 people around the world.[1][2] It is organized in four primary business groups: access equipment, defense, fire and emergency, and commercial.



Founded in 1917 as the Wisconsin Duplex Auto Company, the company was created to build a severe-duty four-wheel-drive truck. After the first prototype was built, the company began to develop rapidly. This first four-wheel-drive truck, known today as "Old Betsy", is still owned by Oshkosh Corporation and housed in one of its assembly plants in Oshkosh. The vehicle still runs and is used frequently in demonstrations and parades.[3][4]


With its global headquarters in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, Oshkosh Corporation has manufacturing operations in 11 countries and additional service operations in 16 countries. The Access Equipment division is headquartered in McConnellsburg, Pennsylvania; the Defense division in Oshkosh, Wisconsin; the Fire & Emergency division in Appleton, Wisconsin; and the Commercial division in Dodge Center, Minnesota.

Oshkosh products and services are sold in more than 130 countries around the globe. The company also maintains a global service network.


Oshkosh Corp. manufactures, distributes and services products under the brands of Oshkosh, JLG, Pierce, McNeilus, Medtec, Jerr-Dan, Oshkosh Specialty Vehicles, Frontline, SMIT, CON-E-CO, London, and IMT.
