Since OSI Group came into existence in 1975, the company maintains its core principal of serving customers consistently. The food production company continues to sustain its production of beef, poultry, pork, and other products’ mandate under the leadership of Sheldon Lavin. Sheldon doubles as the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the group. He joined the company in 1970 when it was known as Otto & Sons, but the name OSI Group was adopted in 1975 when he was invited as a partner. Together with the group’s president and the Chief Operations Officer, David McDonald, Sheldon Lavin made the group the company what it is today despite the technological and strategic challenges during the company’s operations. One of the challenges is the rise in demand for its products from the customers and the way to tackle the problems.
To counter the demand, the CEO guides the group on how to improve its productivity. One way the company continues to make an acquisition of other companies or upgrade the current plants. Sheldon continues to oversee these processes over the days. Some of the companies, which were acquired, include Tyson Foods, Baho Foods, and flagship Europe. Tyson Foods is located in Chicago. The company lies in a 20,000 feet space, which is an added advantage to the company because it would use the area for future expansions. Through the acquisition of Baho Foods, the company is optimistic that it will serve its customers in Germany Netherlands. Although Baho Foods produces are products as the group, it will create an excellent platform for OSI Group through its five subsidiaries spread across five countries across Europe.
Flagship Europe was acquired to cater to the European market through the supply of frozen poultry, sauces, sandwich fillings, dips and pies to name but a few. Apart OSI Group reaching more customers in Europe, the acquisition also led to the improvement of the Flagship Europe’s market. In Spain, the group upgraded the Toledo plant to boost the annual production by adding more facilities. The poultry production was aimed to double from 12,000 to 24,000 tons annually. The total output of the plant was designed at 45,000 tons per year. Sheldon Lavin operates together with the President and Chief Operations Officer David McDonald. Both have worked in OSI Group for over three decades with McDonald joining the group in 1987, seventeen years behind Sheldon Lavin. These two men are the main pillars of the company’s sustainable and robust service to its customers.
