McNeilus has announced that it will transition the manufacturing of their concrete mixers to two locations, sister company London Machinery’s facility in London, Ontario, Canada, and parent company Oshkosh Corporation’s facility in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.
“Adding McNeilus mixers into these other world-class mixer manufacturing facilities provides upgraded economies-of-scale and tailored flexibility for our mixer businesssaid Bob Monchamp, VP and general manager of concrete mixers for McNeilus and London. "While this provides the growth capacity needed, the simplified platform allows our ability to expand the resources for the customers we serve in North American and global markets. We will continue to invest in superior customer experiences, customer support, and product innovations.”
London Machinery has been manufacturing concrete mixers for over 115 years. The company joined Oshkosh Corporation in 2005. Their facility, completed in 2009, is purpose-built to produce mixers.
The custom space encompasses just over 145,000 square feet. Over the past three years, the facility produced several hundred McNeilus mixers for the U.S. market.
The Minnesota campus has been home to McNeilus mixer production for the past 50 years. The campus has increased in size over those years, including adding the production of refuse collection vehicles 29 years ago. The transition of mixer manufacturing expands capacity for both McNeilus concrete mixers and refuse collection vehicles.
The McNeilus Dodge Center Headquarters will continue to be home to the Mixer Research & Development Center for concrete placement products.
A phased transition plan will take place rapidly over the next few months.
