Oshkosh Corp.'s McNeilus unit to spend $50 million to expand in Tennessee

Nov 29, 2023

McNeilus Truck and Manufacturing Inc., a Minnesota-based company, last week announced a $50 million investment to expand its manufacturing presence in Tennessee.

Company leadership is in the process of finalizing provisions to occupy a new facility in Murfreesboro, which will bring 230 new jobs to the area over the next five years. McNeilus Truck is owned by the Oshkosh Corp., an Oshkosh-based specialty truck manufacturer and global technology company that employs roughly 15,000 people around the world.

Brad Nelson, executive vice president and president of Oshkosh Commercial, said in a press release that the expansion is part of the commercial segment's accelerated growth strategy.

"The facility will provide advanced manufacturing flexibility, proximity to supply chain and the expanded workforce needed to accelerate technology and innovation, while expanding our footprint," Nelson said.

McNeilus Truck manufactures concrete mixer and transport vehicles and refuse collection trucks.

Murfreesboro is becoming an increasingly popular destination for businesses and transplants alike. Its proximity to Nashville makes it a relatively short commute to downtown, and home prices are cheaper than in the city.

City leadership recently approved a $40 million development plan to bring NotesLive, a live music campus, including an amphitheater, indoor music venue and a restaurant to the city.

M.L.Rose Craft Beer & Burgers also recently announced plans to open a location in the city.

The city also made headlines recently for filing a lawsuit against Republic Services Inc., the owner of an area landfill which the city alleges is contaminating local water supplies.
