Growmark recently purchased the Wisconsin and Michigan retail business of SemFuel, L.P., Green Bay, Wis. 

The business will be operated by two Growmark members, Servco FS Cooperative at Antigo, Wis. and Frontier FS at Jefferson, Wis. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

The SemFuel retail business includes bulk fuel plants and automated fuel sites. The bulk fuel facilities are located in Wisconsin Rapids, Waupaca, Merrill, and Oconto Falls, Wis., and Escanaba, Wilson, Daggett, and Kingsford, Mich.

The seven automated fueling sites are located in five communities – three in Green Bay and one each in Ashwaubenon, Wisconsin Rapids, and Appleton, Wis., and Escanaba, Mich.

Shelly Kruse, Growmark vice president, Midwest Retail & Acquisitions, says the acquisition will allow Servco FS Cooperative and Frontier FS to continue a long tradition of serving customers in Wisconsin.

"Frontier and Servco have a strong heritage of being reliable suppliers of quality refined fuel products and services  to much of Wisconsin. The addition of the SemFuel retail business strengthens that heritage and provides consumers access to the products and services of these two cooperatives" she said.
