While Tyson Foods had to make a serious decision and close down one of their manufacturing plants, another food distributor has come in to buy the plant and bring back jobs to south Chicago. The shutting down of this plant was becoming inevitable as Tyson’s leaders said that this plant simply couldn’t keep up with the new customer demands that were hitting the marketplace.
When the plant changed ownership around 480 employees had been laid off, but OSI Group offered employment to all of those remaining the opportunity to stay with the company. OSI Group has stated acquiring this plant will help meet their own demands for increased production spaces.
OSI Group operates out of the greater Chicago area and is one of the world’s largest growing private companies in the food service sector. The company processes and treats meat taken from domestic livestock and has partnerships with various distribution companies by which they sell it to clients across the globe. They’ve acquired various Asian and European food distribution companies including Baho Food and one of the UK’s largest distributors, Flagship Europe. In most cases, OSI Group’s practice when acquiring companies has been to retain current leaders at the companies while increasing their supply chain and funding.
