OSI Group Acquires More Space for Spain’s Chicken Production

Business expansion is the primary strategy that offers an organization myriad of opportunities to be exposed to a broader audience. As such, OSI Industries Spain recently announced that it had doubled its chicken production by acquiring an additional facility. According to the spokesperson and managing director Mr. Jose Maria, the new expansion is the answer to the ever-growing population that has a direct impact on the total demand.

In the past, the Spain Branch chicken production capacity was 12,000 tons. Currently, it has increased to 24,000 tons. This is a sign of growth and OSI Industries, being the supplier that it has been for decades, is willing to accommodate this new demand in every way possible. Also, the Spain OSI Industries branch has a clear focus on providing consumers with the best quality of chicken products.

Regarding the new expansion, OSI Industries Spain is working with the additional 22,600 meters of shipping rooms, receiving rooms and production units. In addition, there are refrigerated rooms made for waste container storage and service areas for hot water and oil. The social area, on the other hand, is made for the interacting purposes of employees.

Moving forward, OSI Industries Spain is meant to continue supplying its products to its consumers in the best ways it can. This means that the employee turnover is relatively made to increase. As such, the company prides itself on being an equal employer. With the additional kitchen on the side, clients and consumers will undoubtedly receive some of the best services.

Regarding this acquisition, Dave McDonald, the president of OSI Group said that the expansion strategy adds new products to the company’s portfolio. In return, there will be consistent growth in food service as well as retail accounts.

It is critical to note that the chicken production expansion is not OSI Group’s only expansion project. In 2016, the company made a major transaction by acquiring Baho Food. This Dutch food production company has since then, expanded OSI Group’s scope of client base by thousands. It is one project that the company continues to thrive on knowing that there will be more consumers attracted to the business.

In June 2016, OSI Group purchased the Tyson Foods. This manufacturing plant played a pivotal role in expanding the client base as well. Because Tyson Foods is closer to OSI’s Chicago, it is easier to manage the business. Well, OSI Group continues to excel through these expansion projects.

OSI Group Offers Hope And Opportunity

OSI Group has operated in the Chicago area for many decades. The company began as a meat market in 1909. Its founder, Otto Kolschowsky grew his small business into a local meat distribution company for other food service providers. He called his startup company Otto & Sons. Otto and Sons gradually expanded over the years. However, it got its big break when they were recruited by Ray Kroc of McDonald’s in the 1950s. Ray Kroc was opening a restaurant in Des Plaines, Illinois and needed a meat distributor.

Otto and Sons demonstrated the ability to support the ambitions of the growing organization. They brought several innovations to the business relationship such as the patty cutting machine and cryogenic freezing. Cryogenic freezing allowed Otto and Sons to maintain a huge inventory of meat while preserving its freshness. Otto and Sons were able to deliver their product to McDonald’s in the exact manner they wanted it with the patty cutting machine. Before long they became the exclusive meat distributor to the McDonald’s organization.

OSI Group purchased the Tyson Foods plant in Chicago for 7.4 million dollars. The plant was in jeopardy of shutting down. If the shutdown went through there would have been a loss of nearly 500 jobs. OSI seized the opportunity to expand its operation and preserve the livelihood of so many workers that had spent their entire careers at Tyson Foods. Many were offered positions with OSI.

Otto and Sons became OSI Industries in 1975. It expanded its operations to include other fast-food chains such as Papa John’s Pizza, Pizza Hut, Subway, and Starbucks. There are 65 plants located in 17 different countries. OSI was named by Forbes as the 136th largest privately owned company in the United States. It provides tremendous job opportunities for qualified candidates around the world. The company holds recruiting bases in the UK, Poland, Germany, Hungary, Asia-Pacific and the United States.
