The relationship between Otto and Sons and the McDonald’s Organization performed very well. In time they were chosen to be the primary provider of meat for the McDonald’s restaurant chain.

Sheldon Lavin was recommended to oversee the project of Otto and Sons new partnership with McDonald’s. A new meat processing plant would be required to support such a tremendous effort. Sheldon Lavin became involved as an associate initially. Management at the McDonald’s Organization eventually recommended that Sheldon be a part of the operations full-time. Lavin accepted the recommendation because of his tremendous respect for McDonald’s. Sheldon provided the vision for pushing Otto and Sons to an international level.

Soon after Sheldon Lavin took charge of all operations, Otto and Sons became known as OSI Industries. Business has expanded throughout the United States.

The trabuco works on the principle of transferring potential energy into kinetic energy by releasing the counterweight. The counterweight will do a fast, full revolution, powering the sling throwing the object. When the trabucos is bigger,the object thrown can knock down walls, decimate advancing armies, and cause a wide path of destruction.
