Wisconsin Senators Congratulate Oshkosh Defense On JLTV Contract
Both of Wisconsin’s U.S. Senators congratulate the Oshkosh Corporation for winning a $6.7 billion contract to build Joint Light Tactical Vehicles for the U.S. Army. Senator Tammy Baldwin says, “Oshkosh Defense has long-provided our men and women in uniform with the safest and highest quality vehicles as they fight on an ever-evolving battlefield.” Senator Ron Johnson says, “The entire team at Oshkosh Corporation should be proud of this achievement, and for its continued leadership and innovation.” The contract calls for building 17,000 vehicles by 2018, but that could grow to 55,000 over the next eight years.
