Jun. 8, 2016

OSHKOSH, Wis.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Oshkosh Corporation, (NYSE:OSK), announces today that it has been honored by the Defense Security Service (DSS) with the 2016 James S. Cogswell Outstanding Industrial Security Achievement Award for its facility located in Oshkosh, Wis.

The award recognizes industrial security excellence and is one of the most esteemed awards given by the Defense Security Service, a federal security agency of the U.S. Department of Defense. Of the more than 13,000 cleared facilities, less than one percent, or only 42 facilities, received this award.

“We’re proud to be recognized among the elite companies selected to receive this prestigious award,” said Wilson R. Jones, Oshkosh Corporation president and chief executive officer. “This award highlights our commitment to serving our role in the national security mission of the Defense Security Service. Through disciplined security procedures and training, our employees demonstrate an exceptional commitment to managing security procedures and information as required by the Department of Defense.”

Facilities may be nominated for the award by their assigned industrial security representative only if they have a minimum of two consecutive superior industrial security review ratings and also show a commitment to excellence and innovation in overall security program management, implementation and oversight.

The James S. Cogswell awards were presented earlier today at the 52nd annual National Classification Management Society (NCMS) Society of Industrial Security Professionals seminar in Nashville, Tenn.
