The National Cooperative Refinery Association will become part of CHS Inc., on September 1, 2015. CHS is the nation's leading farmer-owned cooperative and a global energy, grains and foods business. Current NCRA employees will become employees of CHS and the refinery, its terminals and vehicles will be rebranded as CHS.
According to a letter sent to McPherson community leaders earlier this month, CHS said, "While the name and ownership will change, many things will not. We look forward to building on NCRA's commitment to its nearly 700 employees, its strong safety record and its active financial and volunteer support of the McPherson community."
A gathering is planned for community leaders in early 2015.
