OSI Industries was established in 1909 by Otto Kolschowsky, a German immigrant who wanted to become successful in the United States. The initial name for OSI Industries was Otto & Sons, and it all began as a small stall within the meat market in the city of Oak Park, Illinois. Otto Kolschowsky managed the business, and as time went by, more customers are coming into his stall to purchase his high quality meat products. The revenue being made by Otto & Sons grew because of the rising number of their loyal customers, and after a decade, they managed to open another branch in the city of Maywood, Illinois. The name Otto & Sons was registered with the government 20 years after its establishment. The company keeps on growing as new business partners are signing deals with them. In 1955, McDonald’s Corporation approach Otto & Sons, offering a deal of becoming one of their business partners that would deliver fresh burger patties and other meat products to the growing fast food chain. Otto & Sons signed the deal, and they became partners with McDonald’s Corporation, which would become their largest and longest business partner. As Mcdonald’s Corporation expanded globally, Otto & Sons managed to grow their business as well, and the success of McDonald’s Corporation in building their fast food empire became beneficial to their partners, including Otto & Sons. In the 1960s, the meat freezing technology was invented, and McDonald’s Corporation has to terminate its contracts with some of its partners, but it spared Otto & Sons because of the trust that they have with the meat company.
Otto & Sons was renamed to OSI Industries in 1975, and it slowly became one of the largest companies in the United States. They also expanded to Asia and Europe and created several facilities that would house several livestock and slaughter houses. Currently, the value of OSI Industries is at $6.1 billion.
