Oshkosh Corp. recently announced that it will establish a new manufacturing facility in Jefferson City, Tennessee. A leading designer and manufacturer of specialty vehicles and vehicle bodies, Oshkosh plans to create more than 300 jobs in Jefferson County over the next three years.

"With products and facilities around the world, we are excited to grow our operational footprint," said Wilson R. Jones, Oshkosh president and CEO. "Oshkosh Corp. is positioned for success in all segments, and this new manufacturing facility will allow us to continue to respond to the demand for increased manufacturing capabilities."
