Tyson Foods was acquired by OSI when the news came that it was going out of business. Tyson Foods had been an operator in the Chicago area for many years. There were an estimated 500 jobs at stake if the closure took place. Leaders of OSI Industries decided to make the purchase and keep the company running. Many of the employees at Tyson Foods were offered positions with the OSI team.

Leaders at OSI Industries are proud of the fact that there is a very low turnover rate among staff. This is because the company recruits those who want to have a career with the organization.
OSI Industries evolved from a small family-owned business. It was originally a meat market known as Otto & Sons. Otto Kolshowsky founded the company and ran it with his family. He became very successful over the years as a provider of product to local food businesses in the Chicago area. By the 1950s, Otto had settled into retirement and his sons were running the business. They began a working relationship with the McDonald’s Corporation. The move took Otto and Sons to a different level of business operation.
Otto and Sons built a state-of-the-art meat processing plant in order to accommodate the new contract with McDonalds. The facility had innovative concepts such as meat cutting machines and cryogenic freezing chambers.
Otto and Sons’ successful business methods earned them the right to be the sole provider of product to the McDonald’s Corporation. Soon after they became known as OSI Industries.
