A message from our CEO on COVID-19

The COVID-19 pandemic is changing life and work as we know it. Everyone is being affected in some way, including Oshkosh Corporation team members, families, customers, suppliers, communities and shareholders. First and foremost, our thoughts are with those working the front lines helping people most in need. They are working tirelessly to provide care under some of the most difficult circumstances. To these individuals, thank you for all you’re doing.

I also want to thank our Oshkosh team members for continuing to make a difference every day by caring for their families, fellow team members and customers during this unprecedented time. We believe in putting people first, and we know extraordinary things can be accomplished when we all work together. Now, more than ever, these values are guiding us as we confront the COVID-19 pandemic.

The health and wellbeing of our 15,000 team members and their families across the globe will always be at the forefront of our decisions and actions. We’ve taken several important steps to ensure the safety of our team members, and limit the spread of the virus, while continuing to support the critical work of our customers and those who rely on our products every day. If team members can work remotely or from home, we’ve asked them to do so. For our production facilities, or where remote work is not an option, we’ve implemented additional measures to protect the health and safety of our people. 

We remain focused on our team members, our customers and our communities so we can continue to support those who rely on our products to build, serve and protect people and communities around the world.

These are difficult times and we will rise to the challenge as we have done for over 100 years.
Together, we will persevere.

Wilson Jones
Chief Executive Officer
