With a life of agriculture under his belt, Oscar Ramos, CEO of OFR, Inc. knows the ins and outs of the field. Raised on a family ranch run by his father, Oscar worked many of the activities he now contracts for. This provided Oscar the knowledge not only to gauge the quality of services but also all that it takes to nurture a vineyard to its fullest potential.
When OFR, Inc. was founded it was like any other labor contracting company, run out of a small office with few key members. Nobody would have expected the leap OFR would take in the coming years. With Oscar steering the company and his few supporting people, OFR picked up momentum quickly. Oscar’s age and knowledge combined created a modernized vision of what labor contracting once was. Implementing all the successful elements of traditional contracting along with steadfast preventive measures to attack the details he’d seen be the downfall of so many contractors over the years. To accomplish this, OFR invested its early profits into creating divisions of the company that would be directly responsible for each component of farm labor. Where Field Operations would oversee quality and production, Safety & Compliance would address injury reporting, employee safety training and OSHA Compliance, then just as important, Payroll staff would ensure timely and proper payment in compliance with the Department of Labor. It wasn’t long before Oscar’s vision and ingenuity paid off, as the list of lasting contractors dwindled and the amount of lawsuits rose, OFR was still standing strong and promptly became a rational option for growers.
