The OSI Group Pushing for Growth with Excellent Strategy

The OSI Group has been continuously expanding its presence across the nation by purchasing companies that share its values for providing excellent services to its clients. OSI Industries have invested money in developing their offering so that they can offer custom solutions that their clients appreciate. The profits of the company in the last year alone show its capability and their will to become a successful global brand.

The OSI Group aims to achieve sales and higher growth by partnering with their clients on such products that are in high demand. They wish to bridge the gap and allow customers to purchase things that they want in the modern world such as organic products. Apart from the affordable products available in the market, they also wish to reach out to those who do not mind spending on premium products. Throughout their product range, one thing that people can find common is the taste and the healthy way in which it is made. OSI Industries wish to offer more choices to customers and want to expand in more countries apart from the 16 others apart from the United States where they already operate.

OSI Group recently took over a Tyson Foods plant in Chicago by investing $7.4 million. The 200,000 square foot facility is set to increase the company’s offerings and will include beef products such as hamburgers and meatballs. Apart from that, the facility will also produce bacon, hot dogs, and other poultry items. OSI Industries have also purchased Flagship Europe, and with that, they have added more products to their line. Some of the products that they will offer through this new company are sandwich, marinades, dressings, dips, sauces and more. Another company, Baho Foods have also merged with OSI Group. Baho Good is a well-known company in Europe offering snacks, convenience food, and deli meats. The company has five subsidiaries in Germany and Netherlands and offer their services to about 18 countries.

OSI Industries have been in business for over 50 years, and it is their aggressive growth strategy and excellent customer service that has helped it to become one of the largest privately owned company in the world. OSI Group has its headquarters in Aurora, Ill but each of its subsidiaries works independently. The company believes that businesses cannot be run across countries similarly as there are many cultural differences that need to be taken into account. Using local management teams, the company has been able to operate successfully in multiple countries.

Sheldon Lavin, Business Titan and Family Man

Sheldon Lavin’s meat business career was built patiently and persistently. Lavin entered the sector over four decades back as a “outsider”. Since then, Lavin has become Chairman and CEO of the OSI Group, LLC and has changed the little, “McDonald’s focused” hamburger supplier into a global provider of food items to many different foodservice and retail manufacturers.

OSI Group numbers almost 20,000 employees internationally, and Lavin is most proud of their workers and the business culture he’s cultivated. The organization is highly family-oriented, and the work force is full of loyal employees who have been with the company for ages.

Lavin’s route to meat business success started in 1970 when he ordered funding for Otto & Sons, the predecessor firm of OSI Industries, LLC. Otto & Sons had an chance to construct a meat processing center and eventually become the Midwest provider of hamburgers to McDonald’s Corporation, but first they needed help to secure financing. Lavin was asked by the lender to have an ownership position in Otto & Sons, but he dropped since it was not exactly what he was used to in his consulting practice. Lavin, however, did consent to function as a consultant, after some concessions.

Now, at age 81, with the company having grown considerably in the intervening period, Lavin is not done working. He remains active in pursuing additional expansion for the OSI Group with special focus on Asia and Europe. He’s growing and diversifying the company, circling the planet and carrying the OSI brand abroad, all of the while maintaining a commitment to supporting the McDonald’s company (OSI is the greatest protein provider on the planet to the McDonald’s system.) Now, OSI has over 55 centers in 16 countries, supporting the growth of McDonald’s and other clients around the world.

Lavin lived with his wife until she died, and together they raised three wonderful kids, all of whom are married with kids of their own. He also very much believes that the workers of OSI are a part of his international extended family. After all, he is a family man.
