Oshkosh Corp., a leading innovator of purpose-built vehicles and equipment, acquired AUSACORP S.L. (AUSA), a privately held international company and manufacturer of wheeled dumpers, rough terrain forklifts and telehandlers. Upon closing, AUSA will become part of the Oshkosh Access segment.

“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 Corp.’s president and CEO. “We look forward to welcoming the AUSA team into the Oshkosh family.”

AUSA products will enhance the JLG line of telehandlers, as well as Hinowa-tracked dumpers and forklifts to strengthen the Access segment’s portfolio of equipment. The companies began working together through a partner agreement in 2020, with AUSA manufacturing the JLG-branded SkyTrak 3013 compact telehandler.

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

AUSA, which was founded in 1956 in Barcelona, Spain has more than 300 team members and 600 dealers. According to Oshkosh, the AUSA acquisition supports its accelerated growth strategy. The transaction, which is subject to customary closing conditions, is expected to close within 90 days.
