Oshkosh Corporation, the parent company of telehandler manufacturer JLG, is expanding its equipment portfolio with the acquisition of AUSA.

AUSA, which builds wheeled dumpers, rough terrain forklifts, and telehandlers for construction, material handling, agriculture, and other industries, will become part of the Oshkosh Access segment after the acquisition.

"AUSA's history of producing high-quality, purpose-built equipment aligns with our Innovate. Serve. Advance. strategy, allowing us to broaden our product offerings in both current and adjacent markets," said John Pfeifer, Oshkosh Corporation's president and chief executive officer. "We look forward to welcoming the AUSA team into the Oshkosh family."

AUSA has been working with JLG since 2020 through a partner agreement, manufacturing the SkyTrac 3013 compact telehandler. Its products will enhance JLG's telehandler line, the company states, as well as the Hinowa tracked dumper and forklift lines, overall strengthening the Oshkosh Access equipment portfolio.

"We are excited to join forces with a proven partner like AUSA," said Mahesh Narang, executive vice president, Oshkosh Corporation, and president, Access. "Combining our advanced technology capabilities and robust training, support and service infrastructures will allow us to better serve customers and enable targeted growth."

"We constantly pursue excellence in our products, services and business," said Ramon Carbonell, AUSA's chief executive officer. "A deeper relationship with Oshkosh will expand the reach of our products, which is an objective our companies share."
