The OSI Group/ Turi Merger

OSI Industries is one of the most reputable food manufacturers in the world. OSI has kept up with the pace of the fast and dynamic food industry for years and has thus remained a force to reckon with. Their success can be attributed to resilience and business acumen by the guys at the top of the helm of the company’s leadership.

The industry tried their hand in the meat market early in 1900 in Chicago by starting a brainchild company from scratch. Today, OSI Company prides itself on having risen to be the established giant it is in the present day. It boasts about 20,000 workers in 17 American states and also a very clean corporate image.

Just recently, OSI Industries took a very monumental step by merging with the renowned Australian food operator -Turi foods and rebranded to Turosi Pty Limited. The merger was aimed at trying to build a stronger hand in the food industry that could include more food products to their large customer base.

These two food producers are based on the belief that the merger will boost their standing as the two entities will share expertise, facilities, experience and skills, and thereby enabling them to continue building a stronger and bigger brand.

The two companies believe that by merging, they will be able to continue dominating the food market in the two states.

Turi and OSI Industries have for a long time been known for being their reliability. They thus have been able to maintain a very solid relationship with almost all their partners and customers. They are optimistic that the merger will likely have their customers trust them more.

A merger to the new face of OSI translates to stronger market potential and ability to serve their clients better. This merger is a blessing to OSI Industries since they are already existing brands in most states and farms like Colonial Farm, La lonica, and the Golden farms.

On the other hand, Turi has established food production facilities in many places in Australia like Thomas and Victoria making the merger idea more beneficial. Turi boasts the largest poultry processing firm in Australia and has countless customers coming to buy their products every single day.

The primary goal of the merger is to bring forth more creativity, energy, and pool more funds to a transformative agenda towards being world leaders in the food industry.

Did you know that this company dates back to the 1900s? Though OSI Industries has multiple locations, its very first location was in Oak Park, Illinois. As time passed, the company would move to Maywood, Illinois and then it would eventually settle in Aurora, Illinois. This company has German roots thanks to its founder. Otto kolschowski retained many of his old world characteristics. During the beginning stages of business, the company’s name was Otto & Sons. This family owned butcher shop provided great tasting beef for clients throughout the Midwest.

Thanks to providing such great service, Otto & Sons switched gears and moved into wholesale. This action took place near the end of the first World War. Otto & Sons became a vital part of its Chicago community, but bigger things were on the horizon. During the postwar-economic expansion, many new suburbs were popping-up on the outskirts of the major cities and by the 1970s, the company would open an out-of-state factory in Utah. At this point in time, the company had changed its name to OSI and things really begin to take shape.

In 2011, OSI Industries was ranked by Forbes as the 136th largest private company in the US. The company generated an estimated $3 billion. Things would get better and in 2016, Forbes ranked the company at the 58th position for America’s largest private company. As of today, OSI Industries is worth more than $6 billion. The company has acquired stake into many other business’ and there are plans to launch many more facilities in the near future.
