Ever since OSI Industries was founded in 1909 in Oak Park, Illinois as a small family meat market run by German immigrant Otto Kolschowsky, it has always had visionary, innovative leadership. Today, innovative leadership continues to play a major role and give the company a competitive advantage as it continues its international expansion. It has helped to transform what was once a neighborhood butcher shop known for quality meat into a multi-billion-dollar company with tens of thousands of employees and millions of customers all over the globe.
The leadership of OSI Industries has identified the excellent opportunities available to expand internationally. The company continues to improve its food manufacturing industry status by acquiring other food companies that fit well with its goals and values. Through the guidance of CEO Sheldon Lavin, over the past 4 decades OSI Industries has used smart expansion to become a world leader in their industry. That international expansion has enabled the company to increase productivity and be better able to provide quality products and custom solutions for consumers worldwide.
OSI Industries has over 65 production facilities in 17 countries around the world. This enables them to provide the highest quality products for the retail brands and food service companies with which they do business. Last year alone OSI Industries added seven new processing and production facilities. Company president David McDonald acknowledged that international expansion improves OSI Industries’ capacity to give their partners what they want, including organic and natural foods. Plus, they can offer more food choices that are both healthy and tasty.
Recently, CEO Sheldon Lavin and president David McDonald led OSI Industries to acquire Flagship Europe to broaden the company’s European presence and to better meet their customers’ evolving needs. They also added Dutch convenience food manufacturer Baho Foods. It has 5 subsidiaries in Germany and the Netherlands and serves customers in 18 European countries. This acquisition enables OSI Industries to accelerate their growth and offer their customers a broader product portfolio. OSI Industries has also had major production facilities and countless customers in China beginning in 1992. For more info about us: http://www.foodworks.pl/en/osi-group-en.html click here.
