Notable Developments at OSI
Prior to purchasing Flagship Europe, OSI Industries had bought the Tyson Foods plant located in Chicago. The Chicago plant is strategically located near another of OSI’s outlets. It is located on a vast expanse of land covering over 20, 000 square kilometers. OSI Industries’s management says that the Tyson Foods Plant will enable it to increase its production capacity for both local customers and for overseas orders. The group also recently put up a 17 million Euros chicken processing plant in Toledo.
Now, OSI has closed in on Flagship Europe. Officials on both sides say that the deal has been sealed and that it is for the common good of both entities. OSI has also built a name in Europe. In 2015, the group was awarded the prestigious Globe of Honour by the British authorities for its efforts in environmental conservation. It was one of the only 13 companies across the globe to have qualified for the award. Flagship Europe is the main supplier of frozen poultry, pies; sous vide products, mayonnaise dressings and sauces in the UK. The purchase of Flagship Europe complements the main business areas that OSI is preoccupied with. The acquisition comes after Flagship Europe had also sealed a deal in which it purchased Calder Foods. Calder Foods specializes in the supply of fillings for sandwiches, sauces mayonnaise, dips, and marinades. According to Russel Maddock, the Chief Executive Officer of Flagship Europe, the deal has opened vast doors to expand business for the two companies. He notes that Flagship Europe can now access a lot more resources to boost its operations. He observes that the deal has also allowed them access to new clients in new markets. He concludes that the business deal is within the efforts to improve customer services and experiences. On its part, OSI management through David McDonald is quick to confirm that acquiring Flagship Europe has increased its market presence in Europe.
