Foxconn Derails Plan To Build Postal Trucks In WI

A plan by Oshkosh Defense to keep production of new electric US Postal Service trucks in Wisconsin was reportedly scuttled by Foxconn.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that a request from Oshkosh Defense to rent or lease a building on the Foxconn campus in Mount Pleasant to build those new vehicles was turned down.

That reportedly contributed to a decision to build the trucks at an Oshkosh Defense facility in South Carolina.

A statement from Oshkosh Defense said that Wisconsin did not have any available buildings of the dimensions required to meet the postal service contract.
