OSI Industries Saves American Manufacturing Jobs Through Acquisition of Tyson Plant
OSI Industries is synonymous with the production and distribution of the world’s top quality value-added protein products. The company’s portfolio is highly impressive and includes beat products, poultry products, quality sausages, hot dogs, bacon and so much more. OSI Industries does business in 17 countries throughout the world and within those 17 countries the company has an impressive 65 establishments that are operating. Many of these operations function under other company names that have been acquired by OSI Industries. Among all of its accomplishments, OSI Food Group is most proud of being able to gainfully employ over 20,000 people. The company is named as one of the top privately-held food companies in the United States, as well as throughout the world.
OSI Industries recently made a major expansion through the purchase of a former Tyson Food plant. The plant is located in Chicago and is a major move to expand OSI’s reach in the United States, especially in Northeast America. The plant was slated to be shut down by Tyson in late 2017. This would mean that over a thousand people would slowly be laid off. OSI Industries saw this as the perfect opportunity to salvage those jobs as well as continue growing in the United States. OSI bought the former Tyson plant for $7.4 million and the company was able to save most of those people from being laid off.
The acquisition has only been in place for several months now, including the greater part of 2018. However, under OSI Institutions steady management and focus on consistent growth, the Tyson plant is now not only flourishing, but has managed to double its production of chicken. This is essential in a time when chicken is in extremely high demand. It is exceptional that the chicken we now eat from Tyson in Northeast America is now produced by American workers and is directly benefitting the economy of the United States.
OSI Industries has set itself apart from the competition in the industry of meat distribution by utilizing an unparalleled commitment to customer service. The company prides itself on offering an unmatched level of customer service, both to its clients and to the vendors that the company works with. In addition to the extreme dedication to customer service, OSI has also made a lifelong commitment to ensuring that the company has a great company culture and that employees find it a genuinely great place to work.
