OSI Group Acquires Former Tyson Foods Processing Plant

In 2016, the OSI Group bought a Chicago-based processing plant from Tyson Foods for $7.4 million. In November 2015, Tyson Foods on bnpmedia.com had already announced that it planned to shut down its processing facility in Chicago leading to the retrenchment of 480 workers. However, by June 2016, the plant’s new owner (OSI Group) retained at least 250 employees.

Caroline Ahn, the spokeswoman for Tyson Foods, said that the company was glad that the new plant owners would absorb a huge number of its former employees on Crunchbase. On the other hand, OSI’s spokesperson, Alison Kovaleski, said that the exact number of people to be employed at the plant was not yet clear. She added that presently, she did not have any final plans concerning the facility since OSI discloses little about its operations.

On its official website, OSI revealed that the new facility was instrumental in its business growth strategy and that it had the infrastructure needed to support future expansion. OSI is always keen to meet the high expectations and evolving needs of its global customers. Kevin Scott, a senior OSI executive VP for North America said that the group was excited to add the Chicago plant to its broad manufacturing network.
