Reflecting on 100 years of Innovation
In another article written by Gazetteday.com, OSI Industries celebrate a whole century of their grand and continual progress in food processing innovation. This organization had the humble beginnings as a corner butcher shop that began at the turn of the 20th century in Chicago, and now they are the leading provider of multinational foods. They have 65 facilities in 17 countries, and they have 20,000 employees.
The founder of this company was named Otto Kolschowsky who was a German-immigrant in Chicago, Illinois. This business was renamed in 1928 to Otto & Sons in 1928, and for several decades this company progressively grew. As the times changed, McDonald’s came on the scene, and this restaurant became Otto & Sons’ first commercial client, thus becoming a blueprint of Otto & Sons’ astronomical growth from that time period and even now. The following include other major milestones accomplished by Otto & Sons:
* Late 1960s- gained a technological breakthrough to produce an affordable and consumer demand product on a consistent basis.
* In 1973- first plant built in dedication to the product line of McDonald’s
* In 1975- name changed to OSI Industries
* In 1977- first facility built outside the Chicago area
* In 1978 and 1980- a joint venture occurred between Germany and Spain, respectively
* The Early 1980s- Lavin became CEO and chairman of this company
And more additions of partnerships and gains in recognition throughout the next few decades and even now.
With being the major conglomerate of multinational food processing, this company continues to remain on top, and it’s not slowing down any time soon.
