The success path of Mr. Lavin began at Otto and Sons Company where he served the position of a financial consultant. He was only interested in that position even after the bank had earlier requested him to partner with Otto and Sons Company. At that time Otto and Sons Company was experiencing financial problems and needed to expand to other markets.
It’s in 1975 that Mr. Lavin decided to partner with Otto and Sons. It was after the retirement of Mr. Otto, and at that time the owners were seeking for investments abroad. Mr. Lavin was fascinated with the strategies the company used hence he decided to work fulltime for the company. Under the management of Mr. Lavin OSI Group amazingly grew to an international organization from a local processing company.
The expanding journey of the OSI Group has been tremendous, and it began in North America and Europe. That was in the 70’s when it moved to South America. Afterwards, the business spread across other regions namely; China, Japan, South Africa, Phillipines, and Australia. By that time Mr. Lavi has firmly obtained a giant cake of the company controlling 100% of the company’s activities.
The expansion project was wonderful, but it was not the only focus of the OSI Group. The group had products and services aimed at enhancing the domestic market as well. In 2016 it acquired a food plant. The food plant is situated in Chicago and was formerly operated by Tyson Foods. The former owner of the food plant had decided to close the facility because of high cost, but OSI Group purchased it.
