CF Industries is a global leader in the manufacture and distribution of nitrogen products. The company is based in Deerfield, Illinois, and serves agricultural and industrial customers through world-class nitrogen manufacturing complexes in the United States and Canada; and a system of terminals and associated transportation equipment located primarily in the Midwestern United States. The company also owns 50 percent interests in manufacturing entities in the U.K. and Trinidad and in KEYTRADE AG, a global trading organization based in Switzerland.

CF Industries was founded in Chicago in 1946 and operated as a fertilizer cooperative until the company’s initial public offering in 2005. Today CF Industries is a $6 billion company with a market cap of approximately $12 billion. CF Industries’ growth reflects its role in providing plant nutrients to farmers who use its products to increase crop yields to help feed the world’s growing population.

In 2010, CF Industries completed the acquisition of Terra Industries. The acquisition doubled the company’s sales, significantly expanded its manufacturing footprint and distribution flexibility, and positioned CF Industries as the largest manufacturer of nitrogen fertilizer in North America and second largest globally. The company recently announced its plan to invest up to $3.8 billion in new capacity within North America over a 2015-2016 time period.
