OTC is once of the few remaining US companies that continues to grow & thrive regardless of the rest of the nation. In their history of buyouts & acquisitions, every addition has dramatically increased the global position for OTC to continue to grow. Also, each of the acquisitions have shared in the growth their respective brands.

Even though the numbers above say otherwise their defense segment is what has kept them alive this long, every HET, HEMMTT, PLS,etc in the US and other countries inventory is built by OshKosh and they just sold a bunch of new M1070 HETs to the Army as of this year. Of course they're powered by an Acert Cat nownot the tried and proven Detroit 8V92 so they'll be back in for rebuild real soon.
