CountryMark is committed to the well-being, safety and health of our employees and customers as we closely monitor the COVID-19 pandemic under guidance from Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb, President Trump’s Coronavirus Task Force and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Here at CountryMark, we have put important measures in place at all of our facilities to protect the health and safety of our employees, including enhanced cleaning and sanitization as well increased social distancing efforts, helping to reduce the spread of COVID-19.

We are continuing to operate our refinery and terminals – fulfilling our promise to supply farms, fleets and families across the Midwest with a dependable source of quality fuels. Our branded dealer network is also continuing operations by keeping open all CountryMark branded retail fueling sites and continuing to maintain more than 180 fuel and lubricant delivery routes.

Retail site coordinators at CountryMark branded stations are also taking extra precautions to reduce the spread of the coronavirus by increasing how often high-touch surfaces at the pump are cleaned and sanitized.

CountryMark employees and branded dealers will continue to do our part to reduce the spread of COVID-19, maintaining daily operations with safety and wellness at the forefront all while continuing to deliver the quality fuels and lubricants our customers depend on every day.

On behalf of CountryMark, I want to personally thank you for being our customer and helping to deliver on our brand promise.  Even though these may difficult times, with your support we will all get through this together.
