OSI Group has acquired a food manufacturing facility and a storage store in Chicago. The facility that measures 200000 square foot was previously managed by Tyson Foods, which is just adjacent to the current OSI Group’s Chicago facility. The newly acquired facility will play a vital role in the development of OSI by providing the infrastructure to promote continued business development. The facility has improved the company’s capabilities to meet the needs of its clients which evolve time to time. That is according to the senior executive vice president of OSI North America region. He adds that they are thrived to have the facility as part of the company’s extensive processing network. According to report, they failed to disclose the financial terms of the deal, and the company did not reveal what kind of products they are planning to manufacture at the new facility.
As Tyson Foods spokesman narrates, the food facility operated the Chicago plant as part of its processed foods business. However, in 2015, Tyson Foods announced that it is planning to close down the facility together with another plant located in Jefferson, Wisconsin. That move was meant to improve its efficiencies. The workload from the two plants that were closed down was assimilated into other plants in the company that had enough production capacity. OSI Group is an international leader in supplying value-added protein products and other food items to leading food stores and retail brands. The company’s headquarters are based in Aurora, Illinois. According to a report from WATTA, one of the top poultry company’s databases, OSI is a privately owned business with about 60 facilities in 17 countries.
