CASE STUDY: OSHKOSH CORP.
Oshkosh Corporation—headquartered in Oshkosh—is a confident and creative leader in designing, manufacturing and servicing a broad range of access equipment, commercial vehicles, fire and emergency vehicles, and military and specialty vehicles. Empowered by more than 15,000 committed and connected team members around the world, the Company is dedicated to making a difference in large and small communities and in people’s lives.
Oshkosh Defense, a division of Oshkosh Corporation, is an industry leading tactical vehicle manufacturer that has long strived to meet the U.S. military’s ever-changing needs with an array of defense and support technologies. In 2015, the U.S. Army, in its largest contract award in years, selected Oshkosh Defense to build its Humvee replacement, the Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV), which would be manufactured in its Oshkosh facilities.
A year later, as the first JLTV’s rolled out of production, Oshkosh Corporation celebrated its major achievement. It found a local company, Image 360, to assist with the celebration—to provide a fast response to requests, a diverse but consistent line of products at one location, and a centralized ordering and fulfillment system. Image 360 was called upon to transform the Leach Amphitheater into a “Celebrate JLTV” event center, complete with large banners, menu boards and way-finding signs directing hundreds of guests.
100 YEAR ANNIVERSARY
In July 2017, Oshkosh Corporation—a Fortune 500 Company—enthusiastically celebrated its 100th year. Another big event requiring a big promotion! Oshkosh Corporation again was in need of a local sign and graphics partner who could produce a wide variety of signage with consistent materials, a consistent brand message and quality control.
Image 360 stepped in—producing hundreds of signs and graphics for various facilities throughout the City of Oshkosh for the week long celebration. With a series of large community events including an employee concert, parade, and an open house, products such as banners, informational posters, and wayfinding signs were manufactured and installed by Image 360 to assist in the success of this anniversary campaign.
Both of Oshkosh Corporation’s big parties were hugely successful, honoring both its dedicated employees and the community of Oshkosh, as well as applauding the products it designs and develops. Image 360 is proud to have played a part in those successes.
But Image 360 is not only a partner for big events. It serves Oshkosh Corp on a daily basis, creating branded interior graphics and framed images for the many facilities in Oshkosh, safety sign programs, promotional materials, corporate awards and employee recognition items. Image 360 is a comprehensive manufacturing facility, providing design and installation services, with all products custom created for the client’s satisfaction.
