Oskhoshin jättimäinen ajoneuvotilaus materialaisoituu

Oshkosh sai vuonna 2015 US armeijalta tilauksen Humveen seuraajamallin valmistamiseksi. Nyt on tullut vihreää valoa täydelle tuotannonaloitukselle.

Oshkosh Corporation (a contributor to my think tank) was selected to build JLTV for the Army, Marine Corps and special operations forces in 2015, and over 11,000 of the vehicles have been ordered. On Thursday, the Army gave Oshkosh the green light to begin full rate production. The Army plans to buy 49,000, the Marine Corps would like 9,000, and there is a high likelihood that eventually many more will be produced for U.S. and allied forces. That would mean over $50 billion in revenues for Oshkosh, which is currently the sole supplier of trucks to the joint force.

50 miljardin dollarin myynti on aika iso juttu kahden miljardin dollarin kvartaaliliikevaihtoa tekevälle firmalle. Toki tuo tilaus ja toimitukset jakaantuvat pitkähkölle ajalle.

Olen jahkaillut Oshkoshin lisäostoilla aika pitkään, ehkä nyt olisi aika lopettaa jahkailu ja ostaa.
