Oshkosh Corporation Groundbreaking
Oshkosh Corporation, along with members of the design, construction, and community, marked the start of construction of Oshkosh Corporation’s Global Headquarters with a tossing of the sand. The company is consolidating team members from 40 buildings scattered throughout the Oshkosh, WI community into the new facility. A goal of the project is to attract, attain and retain talent on a competitive global level.
The four-story, 190,000 sq. ft. building will house up to 650 employees and allows Oshkosh Corporation to expand. “We’re building it for some growth, capacity to grow,” CEO Wilson Jones said. “But we’re also building it as basically an institution that our corporation can benefit from.”
This also includes the Oshkosh community. A jogging trail along the lake and public conference center space are also in the works. “The first floor is going to be community focused,” Wilson continued. “We’re going to have a large conference space that can seat up to 300 people.”
The new building is expected to be completed next fall. Learn more about Oshkosh Corporation’s Global Headquarters, here.
