bell on the World’s most famous trading platform, the New York Stock
Exchange. We’re proud and humble that our company truly makes a
difference in people’s lives; building on a foundation that began 100
years ago,” said Wilson R. Jones, Oshkosh Corporation President & Chief
Oshkosh Corporation was founded in 1917 by William Besserdich and B.A.
Mosling. The founders developed two key innovations to help improve
vehicle mobility over difficult roads and gave people the courage and
confidence to drive to places they didn’t think were possible. The first
patent was a transfer case that transfers power from the front axle to
the rear. The second patent improved the steering and drive capacity of
the front axle. Travel on uneven terrain became much easier as a result.
Since that time, Oshkosh Corporation has grown in size, capabilities and
footprint. Products in the Oshkosh Corporation family of brands respond
to emergencies, save lives, help others reach new heights and serve the
world around us.
