OSHKOSH, Wis. (WTAQ) - The Oshkosh Corporation is almost synonymous with U.S. military trucks. Now, the firm is working General Dynamics to try and get similar business in Canada. The 2 firms are working with a Canadian division of General Dynamics to seek contracts to make armored patrol units and other military trucks. And Oshkosh would be the major contractor.
Oshkosh says it has worked with General Dynamics in the past on contracts for Canadian military vehicles. It’s now making suspension systems for Mine Resistant-Ambush Protected trucks used by Canada’s troops. No one is saying yet how many vehicles could be made under the new arrangement.
