DODGE CENTER, Minn. (April 26, 2018) – McNeilus Truck and Manufacturing, Inc., an Oshkosh Corporation (NYSE:OSK) company, has re-focused its structure to create a new Refuse Collection Vehicles business unit led by Jeff Koga, whose previous experience includes vice president of Integrated Product Support for Oshkosh Defense vehicles.
In his role as vice president and general manager of McNeilus Refuse Collection Vehicles, Koga will lead all initiatives of the business unit, including product development, production and marketing. He will ensure that McNeilus refuse collection vehicles continue to lead the industry in reliability, performance, innovation and quality.
The appointment of Koga is part of a new corporate structure that includes three distinct business units: Refuse Collection Vehicles, Customer Support Solutions (formerly Aftermarket Parts and Service), and Concrete Mixers. This structure simplifies the business, concentrates focus on customers and products, and aligns resources to deliver world-class service and performance.
“This new organizational structure allows the company to leverage decades of experience and renew its focus on delivering specific products and services vital to the success of our customers,” said Brad Nelson, president of Oshkosh’s Commercial Segment and McNeilus Truck and Manufacturing. “We have equipped each of these three business units with the resources necessary to ensure their independence and success through end-to-end accountability. These resources include human resources, finance, sales, marketing and operations functions.”
Koga brings extensive experience with severe-duty vehicle production, lean manufacturing processes, and global product support to McNeilus. Most recently, he led the cross-segment value stream design for Oshkosh Corporation’s multi-year systems transformation program. Previously, with Oshkosh Defense, Koga established 22 operations globally, expanded international presence, and transformed product support.
