Expansion in Spain
One of the operations that OSI Group has been involved in is the expansion of the food plants in different parts of the globe. One of the plants that have been increased is in Toledo Spain. This plant is used for the production of pork, chicken and beef products. The plant recently underwent expansion, and now it is going to change its productivity. The company is interested in expanding its supply of chicken products, and that is why it has come up with a plan to double the production of chicken products. From 12,000 tons in a year, it will now be producing 24,000 tons a year.
Why expand the plant in Toledo?
The reason for the expansion of the Toledo plant was to meet the high demand for chicken products that were coming from Spain and Portugal. For the past one decade, the number of people who are interested in these products has been going up. The demand started at six percent, and now it is at eight percent. This is an indication that even in the future, there might be further increases. OSI Group has taken the initiative of expanding this plant so that it can meet the increased demand ones it is encountered. The expansion decision was based on consumer data trend. The expansion of this facility involved an additional 22,600 square feet space being added.
After the expansion of this plant, a lot has changed in this company. There has been an increase in the number of people who are employed by the company. After the expansion of this plant 20 more job opportunities have been created. Among the posts that are now available include the position of product development manager.
