A $100 million upgrade shelved by the Delaware City Refinery in 2016 is back in play as the company looks to capitalize on future demand for cleaner marine fuels.
The Delaware City Refining Co. leapfrogged up the list of The News Journal’s Top Workplaces, hopping from sixth best to third among the state’s large businesses.
It’s been in the top 10 for seven years.
The company declined to talk to The News Journal about the rise to No. 3.
In the survey the Top Workplaces results are based on, many workers said they appreciated the company’s trust in their expertise.
“People appreciate and recognize hard-work,” one worker said. “Leadership is sensitive to employee needs especially related to safety. Every employee has the right to shut a job down if something is not right.”
For others, the draw was the unique work environment of a refinery.
“Every day brings a new challenge, it is fast paced and I’m surrounded by hard working people,” another employee said. “It’s a great place to work.”
The state’s only petroleum refinery employs 572 people. The parent company of the Delaware City refinery, PBF Energy, owns four other plants located in California, Louisiana, New Jersey and Ohio.
