McNeilus Truck and Manufacturing Expands Murfreesboro, Tennessee, Operations

McNeilus Truck and Manufacturing, Inc., an Oshkosh Corporation, will expand its manufacturing presence in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. The $50 million project is expected to create 230 jobs over the next five years.

The company plans to occupy a new facility at 2120 Logistics Way.

“We are pleased to add production capacity in Tennessee as 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,” said Brad Nelson, Executive Vice President and president of Oshkosh Commercial.

McNeilus is a market leader and manufacturer of purpose-built commercial vehicles and equipment. Oshkosh Corporation is a global industrial technology company that employs roughly 15,000 people worldwide.

“With more than 2,600 manufacturing businesses across the state, Tennessee is primed to welcome McNeilus to the Volunteer State. We thank this company for its decision to locate in Rutherford County and believe Murfreesboro will be the ideal location for McNeilus’ newest manufacturing plant,” said TNECD Commissioner Stuart McWhorter.

Since 2018, TNECD has supported nearly 140 economic development projects in the Northern Middle Tennessee region, resulting in approximately 41,000 job commitments and $7 billion in capital investment.

“TVA and Middle Tennessee Electric congratulate McNeilus on its decision to establish operations in Rutherford County. Helping attract and retain jobs and investment in the region is fundamental to TVA’s mission of service. We are proud to partner with the Rutherford County Chamber of Commerce and the Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development to further that mission and celebrate this announcement together,” said John Bradley, TVA senior vice president of Economic Development.
