Oshkosh Corp. CEO Wilson Jones, fourth from left and flanked by City Manager Mark Rohloff and Mayor Steve Cummings, participates Monday along with other dignitaries in a ceremonial groundbreaking for the company's new global headquarters at the site of the old Lakeshore Municipal Golf Course. Jones said the address for the building, scheduled to open in fall 2019, will be 1917 Four Wheel Drive. The number is a reference to the year the company was founded, and the new street name is a reference to the company's original products, heavy-duty trucks equipped with four-wheel drive. Jones said that he wants the building to be a resource to the community and said he expects to rent out space to local companies and nonprofit organizations.
