Oshkosh Manufacturing Company (1887-1918) | Historical Construction Equipment Association

Name: Oshkosh Manufacturing Company (1887-1918)

Historical Note: Oshkosh Manufacturing Company was founded in 1887 in Oshkosh, Wisconsin; however, a catalog for their 1914-1915 product line states that they had been in business for more than fifty years. Ransome Concrete Machinery Company (Collection 500) “made a combination” in 1918 with Oshkosh Manufacturing Company (Collection 1797); the “alliance” formed the Ransome-Leach Company, which became Leach Company (Collection 1758).
