Oshkosh Corporation Expanding to Jefferson City

Specialty truck and access equipment giant Oshkosh Corporation will place a factory in Jefferson City, creating more than 300 jobs by 2021, the Knoxville News-Sentinel reports. Oshkosh — which manufactures military, emergency and construction vehicles — will take over and renovate a 500,000-square-foot building that formerly housed a John Deere plant. The factory will facilitate welding and fabrication operations for the company.
