OSI Industries has been hard at work to expand their operational reach even further and strengthen their presence across Europe. The global meat processor acquired the company Flagship Europe in 2016 to achieve that. The company is based in the United Kingdom and was acquired by the OSI Group in 2016.
The Flagship Europe Group is a food service supplier working with frozen poultry, sauces, and dressings, and a variety sous vide items and pies. The President of the OSI Group stated that the Flagship Europe Group complements the portfolio of the corporation well. Mr. David G. McDonald also added that the acquisition has strengthened the position of the OSI Group on the market in the United Kingdom and has allowed the meat processor to polish its services.
The Flagship Europe Group acquired the company Calder Food that same year. That corporation is a supplier of sandwich fillings, mayonnaise, marinades, and sauces, as well as dips and food-to-go products. That further expanded the company’s services to add to the portfolio of the OSI Group.
The leader of the Flagship Europe Group is Mr. Russell Maddock, operating as the Chief Executive Officer of the corporation. CEO Russel Maddock stated that the Flagship Europe Group believes that becoming a part of the OSI Group is a big and promising opportunity for the business. The Flagship Group received more resources as well as hundreds of new clients. That made it possible for the corporation to expand their services and improve upon their position in their line of work.
In the past few years, the OSI Group has completed several successful acquisitions that have provided the corporation with a more solid ground to step on in a few countries in Europe. The OSI Group acquired the former plant of Tyson with operations across Europe as well as the Baho Foods, based in Denmark.
Most recently, the OSI Group completed a factory expansion in Toledo, Spain. The project cost a few million to complete but opened up 20 additional job spaces which brought the total to 180 at that plant. The OSI Group is also establishing plant across China as the market there is growing rapidly and holds a lot of promise for the corporation.
As of yet, The OSI Group is present in 17 countries on a few continents. The corporation operates through more than 65 facilities and is working towards expanding that number. The business employs over 100 000 people.
