JLG Industries, a leading global manufacturer of aerial work platforms and telehandlers, has announced that its parent company, Oshkosh Corporation, is set to ring the closing bell at the New York Stock Exchange today to mark 100 years in business.

The bell ringing will take place at 4 p.m. EDT and will be highlighted across Oshkosh Corporation’s website and social media outlets.

“As we celebrate 100 Years Strong, we’re honored to ring the closing bell on the world’s most famous trading platform, the New York Stock Exchange. We’re proud and humble that our company truly makes a difference in people’s lives, building on a foundation that began 100 years ago,” says Wilson R. Jones, Oshkosh Corporation president and CEO.

Oshkosh Corporation was founded in 1917 by William Besserdich and B.A. Mosling. The founders developed two key innovations to help improve vehicle mobility over difficult roads and gave people the courage and confidence to drive to places they didn’t think were possible. The first patent was a transfer case that transfers power from the front axle to the rear. The second patent improved the steering and drive capacity of the front axle. Travel on uneven terrain became much easier as a result.

Since that time, Oshkosh Corporation has grown in size, capabilities and footprint. Products in the Oshkosh Corporation family of brands respond to emergencies, save lives, help others reach new heights and serve the world around us. Brands under the Oshkosh umbrella include the industry-leading JLG access equipment segment brand.
