Scania joins forces with Oshkosh

Scania and Oshkosh Corporation, a leading manufacturer of specialty vehicles and vehicle bodies, have agreed to enter into a partnership under which Scania will deliver low-emission engines for airport product vehicles produced by Oshkosh. The partnership will cover a range of products to be launched worldwide.

Scania will begin by delivering industrial engines that meet Stage IV and Tier 4 final standards without the use of particulate filters, as well as engines that meet less strict emission levels. The 550-770 hp engines will be incorporated into airport product vehicles.

Meanwhile, Oshkosh is scheduled to launch a new fire apparatus – a firefighting vehicle based on a Scania chassis – at the Intershutz fire and emergency services fair in Hanover, Germany, in June this year.

As the partnership progresses, Oshkosh will launch further vehicles based on Scania products.

“As time goes by, we expect to find a range of areas where both parties can grow their businesses,” says Robert Sobocki, Senior Vice President and Head of Scania Engines. “This partnership has also strengthened Scania’s position on the growing North American market.”

“We are excited to have access to Scania’s renowned low-emission engines for Oshkosh’s expanding lineup of emergency response vehicles,” said Jim Johnson, Oshkosh Corporation executive vice president and president, Fire & Emergency. “Providing our customers with more choices to better meet their needs is an important part of our growth strategy, and offering Scania power is another major step forward.”
