CF Industries, a global leader in nitrogen fertilizer manufacturing and distribution, owns and operates world-scale nitrogen complexes and serves agricultural and industrial customers through its best-in-class distribution system.
Founded in 1946 as a fertilizer brokerage operation by a group of regional agricultural cooperatives, CF Industries grew by expanding its distribution capabilities and diversifying into fertilizer manufacturing. Through 2002, the company operated as a typical supply cooperative. However, in 2003, in response to changing market conditions, it adopted a new business model that established financial performance, rather than the traditional cooperative charge of providing an assured supply of product to its owners, as its principal objective.
In 2005, an Initial Public Offering completed the company’s transition and established CF Industries Holdings, Inc. as a public company. Its common stock is traded on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol “CF.”
In September 2006, the company established its new Corporate Vision and Corporate Values, identifying its long-term aspirations and driving values.
In 2010, CF Industries acquired Terra Industries Inc. Following this acquisition, CF Industries solidified its position as a nitrogen bellwether in the global fertilizer industry and the premier nitrogen manufacturer in North America.
In 2015, CF Industries acquired the outstanding interests it did not already own in GrowHow UK Limited, adding two nitrogen complexes in the United Kingdom.
The company is headquartered in Deerfield, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago. Through its CF Industries, Inc. subsidiary, it operates nine nitrogen fertilizer manufacturing complexes in Canada, the United States and the United Kingdom and a network of fertilizer distribution terminals and warehouses, located primarily in major grain-producing states in the U.S. Midwest. It also owns 50% of a joint venture in the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago. CF Industries, Inc. employs nearly 3,000 people. CF Industries adheres to stringent safety and environmental stewardship standards at all of its operations.

For much of its 65-plus year history, CF Industries was a company that few people outside of the agri-business community knew. From its founding in 1946 until 2005, it was a supply cooperative, owned by a small group of customers and selling the majority of its products to them.
That changed in 2005, when the company completed an initial public offering and its common stock began trading on the New York Stock Exchange.
Over its history, CF Industries has developed a strong, value-driven culture, codified in the company’s Vision and Values. But there’s more to those vision and value beliefs than just words on paper.
I worked at CF Industries full-time (More than 3 years)
great culture since everyone is so laid back and easy to work with. can learn a lot if you apply yourself
sometimes hard to ignore the gossip
I applied online. I interviewed at CF Industries (Deerfield, IL) in July 2017.
Interviewing with AP Supervisor was not a good experience, but meeting with HR and Accounting Manager went well. AP Supervisor was not pleasant, I was told during the interview process that she was open for ideas on how to do things better but in the long run she is the boss and things will be done her way. A bit of a power trip if you ask me.
