Oshkosh Fire and Emergency Sales Surge in China

Recommended Posts

Oshkosh, Wis. (December 5, 2011) – The Fire & Emergency segment of Oshkosh Corporation (NYSE:OSK) announced today that it has sold over 100 Pierce® fire trucks and Oshkosh® airport vehicles in China during the fiscal year that ended on September 30, 2011. The first group of Oshkosh Fire & Emergency vehicles sold in China was delivered in June 2010.

 

China’s continued urbanization and economic growth translate into an increasing need for fire protection at airports and municipal/industrial areas throughout the country.

 

“From engineering to production, we are fully committed to our customers’ satisfaction and we are honored that Oshkosh was selected to provide these vehicles,” said Jim Johnson, Oshkosh Corporation executive vice president and president, Fire & Emergency. “The Oshkosh and Pierce brands continue to experience acceptance and growth on the world stage due to their high quality and superior performance. China is an excellent example of the momentum we have seen for innovative and world-class fire apparatus and airport snow removal vehicles. And our in-country customer support team stands ready to provide world-class after sales service and parts support across China.”

 

In the municipal, industrial, and oil & gas sectors, Pierce’s advanced high technology fire trucks are well suited to meet China’s needs. Pierce custom vehicles sold within China over the last 12 months include high-rise pumpers, aerial ladders and industrial pumpers, which will be deployed in fire departments across multiple provinces in China.

 

Oshkosh Airport Products vehicles, including aircraft rescue and fire fighting (ARFF) and snow removal vehicles, provide protection enabling smooth airport operations under all weather conditions and emergency situations. Oshkosh airport vehicles sold in China during this time period include H-Series™ airport snow removal trucks and Striker® ARFF trucks.

Well that's all nice and good but when is the U.S. gov't going to get tough on the huge trade imbalance between China and the U.S? :mad: This is just a drop in the bucket in terms of the overall picture. Our country is being invaded with Chinese crap and there seems to be no problem with them dumping all of their goods here and meanwhile the Chinese gov't keeps close tabs on what we send them and practice protectionist measures to ensure that their economy isn't harmed with too many US made goods. Meanwhile everyone cries foul when we talk about doing it. Talk about double standards. Any way you slice it the current set up is NOT good for the U.S. even if folks think they're getting some glorious deal with the cheap cost of goods from China. The saying you get what you pay for still holds true. :(

Just be lucky the US is selling China fire apparatus and not buying it from China!

I hope the same can be said about water. At the rate the US is selling everything, China could end up owning the great lakes or something.

Yep, but don't you dare try to buy up anything in China. The government shuts it down and enacts its protectionist measures, but no other country should do it though. They're doing the same thing in Europe... They dump all of their cheap tainted crap into the European Union and cut out competition from European companies and then when the EU considers getting tough on them they get pissed and cry foul. So basically all countries should just allow China to take from their countries while they give very little back in return. That's exactly why I avoid buying anything from there. Their trade practices are far from fair regardless of the country in question.

Are these vehicles actually made in the US, or have we shipped that out to Mexico by now?
