Sheldon Lavin Guides OSI Group into the Future

OSI Group isn’t planning on slowing down their expansion efforts anytime soon. One of the most notable changes within the group has been the addition of 22,600 square feet to their production facility in Toledo, Spain. In that area, there has been an impressive increase in demand for chicken and OSI is making sure that they are ready to supply it.

Throughout this project, the sustainability vision of Sheldon Lavin and OSI Group has been in consideration as certain strategies were implemented. Even in the pre-existing portions of the building, outdated equipment was replaced by state of the art machines that have the potential to reduce the factory’s energy consumption considerably. They estimate that it will reduce the consumption by around 20%.

Sheldon Lavin has led the OSI Group since the 1970’s and has implemented many strategies that have helped the company grow considerably. While OSI has been growing with the demand of their customers, they are committed to going about it while keeping their methods sustainable for the environment. Sheldon Lavin has a particular passion for this goal as their Chief Executive Officer.

OSI Group always had a pattern of success, but the company has been doing remarkably since he took over the position in the 70’s. Sheldon Lavin was with the team at OSI when they were still known as Otto & Sons. In fact, he played a part in helping the company acquire the financing needed to become OSI Industries.

In 2017, the British Safety Council presented the OSI Group with the International Safety Award. Since 2006, OSI Group has been recognized for their efforts 11 times by the British Safety Council. The plant that received this recognition is located in Scunthorpe, England.

In order to accomplish the safety and sustainability goals of OSI Group, Sheldon Lavin knows that commitment to new strategies and technology must be embraced by the company as a whole. Only through hard work can any company reduce the impact that their practices have on the environment. As one of the largest producers of food in the world, Lavin feels that they have a responsibility to participate in environmentally friendly business strategies.

OSI Group has always been committed to innovation. This began soon after the company was founded in Chicago by a German immigrant. Under the watchful guidance of the founder’s sons, the company continued to grow. Now under Lavin, their expansion doesn’t look to be stopping any time soon.
