  • 06-Nov-2010 04:06 EDT

Oshkosh Corp. announced the opening of a new manufacturing plant in Tianjin, China. The state-of-the-art facility produces access equipment made by Oshkosh subsidiary JLG for China and other Asian markets. The new factory marks another milestone in the Oshkosh commitment to Eastern markets. Construction on the Tianjin plant was completed in the spring. Since then, JLG has gradually introduced additional product models into the plant for local fabrication and assembly. The facility uses the latest in manufacturing, subassembly, fabrication, and paint technologies. Oshkosh has a history in China, starting in 1982, when it began supplying Aircraft Rescue and Fire Fighting (ARFF) vehicles. In 2002, a JLG sales office was opened in Hong Kong, followed in 2006 by an Oshkosh corporate office in Beijing. In 2008, Oshkosh opened an additional corporate office in Shanghai, primarily dedicated to sourcing parts and components for the manufacturing of Oshkosh and JLG products. Tianjin is a municipality located in northeast China, two hours from Beijing.
