"On Oct. 1, the trucks were coming through here just like any other day," Plant Manager Dave Podratz said. "They were loading up with product for their customers. Really, nothing has changed - not the sort of products that we make here, not how we are operating the refinery. It's really business as usual."

OK, there has been one cosmetic change, Podratz pointed out.
"Now, we will have a Calumet patch on our overalls instead of a Murphy one," he said.

Podratz, who also serves as president of the Superior-Douglas County Area Chamber of Commerce, said one chief concern from the sale announced in June was how it would affect employment.
"Murphy had a contract in place with the union, a collective bargaining contract, and one of the terms was, if the facility was sold, the new owners would have to honor the contract," he said.
Calumet's business spans hundreds of specialty products, and Podratz said he believes the Superior refinery will complement its existing product offerings.
"They tend to focus on the higher-margin, perhaps lower-volume products than a typical fuels refiner would," Podratz said. "We are looking at cranking out high volumes of low margin things such as gasoline and diesel fuel.
"We are a nice complement to their specialty products," he added, "as well as geographic diversity on top of three refineries they have in Louisiana and the one in Pennsylvania."
He also noted that the rail yard installation project at the Superior site is under construction. It will consist of about 20,000 feet of track and eventually include facilities to load diesel gasoline and asphalt to expand the refinery's markets.
Although Murphy was based in Arkansas, it was supportive of the Superior community, Podratz said. Murphy contributed about 20 to 25 percent of Superior-Douglas County United Way's annual campaign funds and was a member of the chamber and The Development Association. Murphy encouraged Podratz to become a chamber leader. Murphy was also an active sponsor of Superior Days.
"Murphy always had good relationships with the business community," Podratz said.
