New Fuel Station Coming to Richmond

The Harvest Land Energy Department will soon be opening a new CountryMark diesel fueling station at our Richmond bulk plant location on NW 5th St. in an effort to more efficiently meet the needs of our over-the-road customers.

This location is central to many of the fleet operators in and around Richmond, with easy access to I-70. The new station will be an unattended location, offering 24/7 fueling service for CountryMark’s Premium Super Dieselex-4 as well as DEF (diesel exhaust fluid) to fleet card members. The station should open in mid-May.

Last week the 20,000 split tank, holding 12,000 gallons of CountryMark Premium Dieselex-4 and 8,000 gallons of DEF, was lowered into the ground just north of our administration building.

We thought you might enjoy seeing the tank installation process via a photo blog this week.

This was a good reminder of our past. The co-op used to sell coal and many remnants of that past venture were seen during the dig process.

Can you spot John Speer, Energy Division Manager, doing his part to direct Mideast Machinery Movers?

Jim Sweigart and Julie Lamberson, both with Risk Management of East Central Indiana, were on hand to over see the process to ensure the safety of all involved.

We have had the pleasure of working with Jarrett Trucking & Grading and Mideast Machinery Movers, both out of New Paris, Ohio,  on this project.

Stay tuned for updates on this project and the opening announcement!
