Since McDonald took over reigns as the President and the COO of OSI Industries, the company has grown by leaps and bounds. Recently, OSI Industries was ranked among the top hundred biggest privately owned companies in the U.S. by the Forbes. McDonald plans to make OSI Group the biggest producer of meat products and other high-quality foods in the world.
In line with OSI Group expansion strategy, McDonald has led the company into entering into strategic partnerships and making strategic acquisitions in Europe, China, and also at home where they recently acquired the former Tyson Foods facility. In China, McDonald has led OSI Industries into partnering with DOYOO Group. The two giant companies launched a mega processing facility in Henan province in 2012.
Besides the expansion projects in Asia countries, McDonald has guided OSI Group through numerous profitable endeavors. Some of the successful projects that OSI Industries launched in the last five years include the expansion of the Poland meat processing facility. The beef-processing factory increased its production by over 30 percent.
