The Development of OSI Group

OSI Group began its operation in Toledo, Spain in 1990 serving only Illinois as a local company. Today, the firm has over 60 facilities in more than 20 countries around the world. The company distributes processed value-added protein products to the supermarkets and restaurants. Early this year, the firm managed to put up an improvement in the production level of chicken products. The output of the products increased to 24,000 tons every year. The growth resulted from a continuous broadening of the market for chicken products in Portugal and Spain. Consequently, the improvement resulted in an increase in the overall production capacity of quality chicken, pork, and beef products to 45,000 tons each year.

Also, the improvement resulted in an increased number of workers from the initial 140 to 160. In the 20 positions is the product development manager. The official controls the current developing products and adds new ones to the firm’s portfolio. The purpose of the OSI Group is to give affordable, customer-oriented, and consistent products to its clients. The improvement showed the willingness to offer improved services this year and in the future. The firm gets ready for the anticipated continuous increase in the market demand. Thus, the firm gets ready for the future competition and remains the leading meat processed food company in the whole world.

OSI Group had to look for visionary leaders like Sheldon Lavin as the chief executive officer to facilitate its development. Lavin qualifies in the financial matters. Therefore, he assisted in the economic transformation phase of the company. Before joining the firm, Lavin worked for more than 15 years in a consultancy agency in the downtown Chicago called Sheldon Lavin and Associate. During the improvement, the firm added to its workspace 22,600 square feet. Also, the company established new shipping and receiving areas, nitrogen and hot water tanks, and social space for the employees.
