Farmers Union Oil Co.
Cenex® is the energy brand of CHS Inc., a diversified Fortune 500 company that supplies essential grain, food and energy resources. Known for quality, integrity and financial stability, CHS uses its tradition as a producer-to-consumer cooperative system to bring value to customers and innovative leadership to the industry. Our energy business took root in 1931 to serve the needs of rural America. While we're still a vital part of rural communities, our products and services now extend to a much broader audience. CHS ranks as North America's largest cooperative refiner and manufacturer of lubricants, third largest propane s upplier and, with more than 800 Cenex-identified convenience stores, the nation's 13th largest convenience store chain.
CHS owns a 55,000-barrel-per-day refinery at Laurel, Montana, and 74.5% of the 85,000-barrel-per-day NCRA refinery at McPherson, Kansas — plus terminals and pipelines to move approximately 3 billion gallons of refined fuels annually. Already one of the largest suppliers of ethanol-enhanced gasoline, CHS recently built additional off-site loading facilities to increase availability of Cenex biodiesel products. In addition, CHS operates lubricant blending facilities, asphalt terminals and product terminals, and has secured a long-term propane supply agreement with industry partners.
In addition to its energy division, CHS grains, foods and agronomy divisions meet the needs of customers around the world. With more than 12,000 CHS and joint venture employees, and $9.3 billion in sales, CHS has built a reputation as a trusted supplier and valued partner.
