Oshkosh Corporation, a producer of purpose-built vehicles and equipment, has agreed to acquire AUSA, a privately held international manufacturer of wheeled dumpers, rough terrain forklifts, and telehandlers for the construction, material handling, agriculture, landscape, and specialty equipment industries.

AUSA, which was founded in 1956 in Barcelona, Spain, reported sales of approximately $132 million euros in 2023. The companies began working together through a partner agreement in 2020, with AUSA manufacturing the JLG-branded SkyTrak 3013 compact telehandler.

The AUSA acquisition supports the Oshkosh accelerated growth strategy. The transaction, which is subject to customary closing conditions, is expected to close within 90 days.

“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 Corporation’s president and chief executive officer.

“Combining our advanced technology capabilities and robust training, support, and service infrastructures will allow us to better serve customers and enable targeted growth,” said Mahesh Narang, executive vice president, Oshkosh Corporation, and president of Access.
