OSHKOSH, Wis., March 22 (UPI) -- Oshkosh Corp. says it will move into a new facility in Michigan to address the new requirements of its tactical vehicle contracts with the U.S. Army.

U.S. company Oshkosh announced it received $6.4 million in tax credits from Michigan to expand its operations in the state. Under the tax credit deal Oshkosh will move to a new technical facility in Warren, Mich., from its current site in the city.

Oshkosh says the expanded technical operations at its Michigan facility is part of an effort to address its Family of Medium Tactical Vehicles and Family of Heavy Tactical Vehicles contracts with the Army.

"Expanding in Warren is the right choice for Oshkosh Defense because it continues to help us more efficiently interface with Tank-automotive and Armaments Command … who has offices in the Detroit area in support of our work on military programs," Robert Bohn, Oshkosh chairman and chief executive officer, said in a statement.
