OSI Industries is headquartered in Aurora Illinois which is about thirty minutes outside of Chicago. OSI is one of the top rated food industries in the world. Their focus is on prepared foods, chicken, sauces, and other sides. In June of 2016 OSI purchased the Tyson food plant in Chicago for $7.4 million. This purchase allowed for OSI to create new jobs, expand production and expand OSI’s manufacturing network. In addition to the purchase of the Tyson food plant; OSI recently purchased Flagship Europe. Flagship Europe is known for its dressings, chicken, sauces, mayonnaise, pies and sides. The acquisition of Flagship Europe by OSI has broadened the presence of OSI in Europe. Flagship Europe provided most of its products to the United Kingdom even though they were located in Denver Colorado.
Another remarkable expansion for OSI is the updates that were made to the Toledo Spain OSI facility. This facility received a seventeen million dollar investment that increased the chicken production from 12,000 tons to 24,000 tons annually. This facility expansion added a high capacity production line and a 22,600 square foot production hall that included a refrigeration room for waste, shipping and receiving areas and storage. OSI’s Toledo facility added twenty new jobs to the production expansion a product development management position. This region has seen a rise in the demand for chicken and chicken based products and OSI was able to facilitate changes that would meet the local demand.
As OSI expands globally and continually adds new products to their culinary line they will also be adding new employees. The acquisition of other companies brings on many new talented individuals with food service knowledge to add to OSI’s ever expanding global presence. The continued expansions of the existing facilities are creating a demand for more workers in the plants. OSI has been given the 2016 Globe of Honour award by the British Safety Council due to their safe work environments for their employees. These continued updates and achievements will keep OSI a leader in the industry for individuals seeking facility careers.
