Every company aims at dominating in its respective line of business. Doing so is essential to safeguarding the lifespan of the enterprise, as well as maintaining an extensive client base. There are two ways of achieving this. The first involves providing high-quality products which force competitors out of business. The second involves buying competitors facing financial struggles. An Insight on OSI Group and their recent acquisition sheds light on the second principle.
The Aurora-based food enterprise has purchased Tyson Foods for a reported $7.4 million. Based in Chicago, Tyson Foods has faced several challenges in recent years.
The procuring entity has set aside the 200,000-square-foot-facility to provide additional support to the influx of workers. Such an infrastructure has been crucial in meeting the evolving needs of customers. In addition, OSI’s senior executive, Kevin Scott, has hailed the impact made by the new facility in the achievement of company goals.
Before the recent acquisition, Tyson Foods provided delicious meals for high-end clients at the South Side plant. It focused on meals such as meatballs, omelets, chicken cordon bleu, sauces and crepes. However, two of the company’s Chicago Facilities at 400 S. Jefferson St. & 3458 Kostner Avenue are still operational.
