Oshkosh Corporation’s mission is to “partner with customers to deliver superior solutions that safely and efficiently move people and materials at work, around the globe and around the clock.” In short, we strive “To Move the World at Work” ©.
Our number one priority is to serve and delight our customers as well as drive superior returns for our shareholders. We have four primary strategies to help support our mission:
- M – Market Recovery and Growth. Market recovery provides a significant opportunity for Oshkosh to focus on getting back to our average prior peak rates in markets which have been down during the Great Recession. This will provide considerable earnings leverage for our leading brands.
- O – Optimize Cost and Capital Structure. We are constantly evaluating ways to minimize our operating and product costs, while maximizing operations. We have strengthened our balance sheet notably over the past several years with a net debt reduction of more than $2 billion since the recession first impacted the global marketplace.
- V – Value Innovation. Oshkosh is about innovation. From our cutting-edge vehicles and products to our latest technologies, innovations give Oshkosh an opportunity to continue to lead in the markets in which we compete and provide second-to-none aftermarket service and support.
- E – Emerging Market Expansion. Oshkosh has many opportunities for expanding international growth and we are targeting more international revenues to drive future growth.
