OSHKOSH (WKOW) -- Oshkosh Corporation broke ground Monday on its new global headquarters in Oshkosh.

The company builds specialty trucks and defense equipment. The multi-million dollar facility is going up on land that used to be a public golf course.

The city of Oshkosh is also giving the company $13 million in tax breaks and infrastructure -- an investment, they hope will pay off.

"Oshkosh is a community where millennials and new people entering the workforce can come to Oshkosh. Oshkosh Corporation is taking a big leap to say we want to have a presence in a vibrant community and this will feed upon itself," said Mark Rohloff, Oshkosh city manager. 

Officials expect the project to be finished by next fall.
