Founded by German immigrant Otto Kolschowsky in 1909 and known as Otto & Sons, two short years after his arrival in Oak Park, Illinois. His small store grew and flourished until 1955 when it was chosen to supply the early McDonald’s restaurants with meat. This partnership revolutionized both industries as Otto & Sons shifted focus to cryogenic food processing to up with McDonald’s needs. By 1975, Otto & Sons became OSI Industries and served as an exclusive supplier to McDonald’s. In 2011, OSI Group was listed as the 136th largest company with annual revenues upwards of $3 billion according to Forbes. Proudly an American business, OSI Group employs Americans in California, Illinois, Iowa, Utah, and Wisconsin.
OSI Group is committed to creating quality, safe custom products that value to our customers’ lives. As a result, they were awarded the 2016 British Safety Council award, The Globe of Honour, for exemplary management of environmental risks. This prestigious recognition is reserved for those businesses that achieve a perfect 5-star score on an environmental audit during the period of August 2015-July 2016. This process critiqued every facet of GSI Group’s operations from the shop floor to their executive offices and processes. Then, they were subject to an independent panel of experts and their individual critiques. Again, from shop floor to the executives. Presenting OSI Group with The Globe of Honour was a great reflection of the company’s dedication to their environment and the quality of their business.
