Cushman Golf Cars
What began with two cousins building farm machinery and two-cycle boat engines in 1901 is now the manufacturer of the broadest line of utility vehicles on the market.
The Cushman brand has witnessed two World Wars and a number of owners, including The Easy Manufacturing Company, Outboard Marine Corporation, Ransomes and currently Textron, Inc. During World War I, Cushman provided two- and four-horsepower engines to operate water pumps, cream separators, washing machines and wood saws. By World War II, the company was producing scooters used by the Navy, the Army and the Army Air Force.
Its unwavering spirit of entrepreneurship led to an impressive plant expansion in 1950. The now 250,000-square-foot factory took on an assembly-line approach, producing 10,000 scooters each year in addition to Husky air-cooled engines and Cub water-cooled engines. By the end of the decade, Cushman moved on to three- and four-wheeled commercial and industrial vehicles. With it came a commitment to building ‘green’ vehicles, such as the quiet, electrically powered and energy-efficient Titan, Tug, Stock Chaser and Minute Miser, and the introduction of heavy-duty utility vehicles such as the Haulster, Hauler and 1600XD — all of which are now leaders in their class.
Today, 100 years after the first engine was shipped out of the Lincoln, Nebraska plant, Cushman is still striving to provide rugged, dependable solutions for a variety of industries. And with the ever-expanding resources of Textron, one of the world’s most renowned manufacturers of transportation vehicles, Cushman continues to grow. Cushman vehicles are now manufactured in Augusta, Georgia, in a 650,000-square-foot plant recently honored as one of the top 10 manufacturing facilities in North America by IndustryWeek magazine. The company continues to build on its reputation for delivering quality, heavy-duty industrial material carriers and comfortable personnel transport vehicles.
