Oshkosh Corporation to acquire Ausa

Ausa will join Oshkosh and broaden its dumping and access equipment lines

Oshkosh Corporation, a US manufacturer of specialty trucks and access equipment, has announced it has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Ausacorp S.L., 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,” Oshkosh Corporation president and CEO John Pfeifer says.

Ausa products will accompany Oshkosh’s JLG line of telehandlers and 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,” Oshkosh Corporation executive vice president and president of the Access segment Mahesh Narang says. “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, reported sales of approximately $132 million Euros (A$215.7 million) in 2023.
