OSI Industries is a food processing firm that has operations located all around the world. One of the areas that the company operates out of is Spain. OSI’s Toledo, Spain processing facility is responsible for production for the markets in Portugal and Spain and it has recently undergone a massive upgrade that has dramatically increased its processing capabilities. In fact, these significant upgrades have doubled the facilities quota of processed chicken annually as compared to before the upgrade. These facility improvements also include upgrades to the facilities security and storage capacity. The OSI Industries commitment to world-class customer service goes all the way back to the company’s beginnings in 1909. The company is pro-active in the area of research as well as development.
In regard to the massive works done at the Toledo, Spain facility, OSI Industries added 22,600 square feet to the facility and this space includes a production hall, storage areas, service areas, areas for shipping and receiving and also an area for employee social interaction. OSI Industries also added a top-notch test kitchen that will play a vital role in helping the company to develop new products. The main victory in this expansion project has been the fact that OSI’s chicken production at the facility has jumped from 12,000 tons per year to 24,000 tons per year.
OSI also prioritized an improvement in the Toledo facility’s sustainability and its overall security. The upgrades in security are all a part of an effort to increase safety for employees as well as product security. Toward this effort, new surveillance systems have been added to the facility. OSI also put major efforts to increase the facilities overall energy efficiency as well as its sustainability. These are principles that the OSI executive team takes very seriously. The final results have been a twenty percent reduction in electric consumption.
In other recent OSI Industries news, the company also purchased the former Tyson plant in Chicago, Illinois. This purchase has much of the same motivation that led the company to upgrade the Toledo facility. This purchase will serve to dramatically increase OSI’s production capabilities in the Chicago area.
