Driven to lead. Built to last.

It started with a patent and a mission: to design and build innovative products that power global progress. The Oshkosh Corporation was founded in 1917, driven by a breakthrough four-wheel drive system that gave people the courage and confidence to go places they never thought they would. Today, more than 15,000 Oshkosh team members are putting over 800 active patented technologies to work serving, developing and connecting communities around the world.

More than a century of moving the world forward

In 1915, William Besserdich and Bernhard Mosling patented their innovative four-wheel drive system. Unable to find a buyer for their design, they endeavored to realize its promise themselves. That marked the start of the Oshkosh Corporation—and set the tone for the next century. Ten brands, six continents and more than 800 active patents later, we’re still dreaming up new and better ways to make a difference around the world.
