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 Oshkosh Corporation—and set the tone for the next century. Ten brands, five continents and more than 800 active patents later, we’re still dreaming up new and better ways to make a difference around the world.
