OSI Industries recently decided to expand its operations in order to better serve its local Chicago customer base as well as its larger United States audience. To do this the company bought out a former Tyson Foods plant on the south side of Chicago for $7.4 million. The plant is located nearby an existing plant, which will help top support its efforts, and it measures in at around 200,000 square feet. The plant was previously used to service the hospitality industry with meals, such as, crepes, omelets, soups, sauces, and more, and 480 workers were scheduled to be laid off as it closed down. While the exact amount of workers were not disclosed, it is known that OSI Industries offered jobs to many of the former Tyson employees who were laid off in the process.
In 2017, OSI Industries aimed to double its chicken production capacity in Spain by adding a high-capacity production line to its Toledo, Spain operations. By investing €17 million, the company has increased its processed chicken products by twice the amount; going from 12,000 tons every year to 24,000 tons. This puts its overall production limit at over 45,000 tons of chicken, pork, and beef products and will also put 20 more people to work in the area. Specifically, new receiving and shipping areas were added along with a new production hall, refrigerated rooms, storage for supplies and waste, a product development kitchen, and much more. David McDonald, the President and COO of OSI Industries, related that the move would allow the company to offer new products and support its existing customer base as well as new customers.
