Who we are

About us

WesCEF’s portfolio of businesses provides the fertilisers that enrich crops and nourish local and international communities, the natural gas that warms our homes, and products that underpin critical existing and emerging industries.

Wesfarmers Chemicals, Energy and Fertilisers (WesCEF) is a division of Wesfarmers, comprising nine industrial businesses that operate in domestic, national and international markets.

WesCEF businesses include; CSBP Chemicals and Fertilisers, which has a 110-year operating history in WA; natural gas provider Kleenheat, which is WA’s largest LPG and LNG retailer; and Victoria-based PVC resin supplier, Australian Vinyls and ModWood, a composite timber decking business. WesCEF also has a 50 percent stake in both Queensland Nitrates and the Covalent lithium mine and refinery.

We employ around 1,600 people across our businesses – located in Western Australia, the Northern Territory and Victoria. This number excludes our joint venture businesses – QNP and Covalent – which operate independently.

Most of WesCEF’s facilities are in Western Australia, with offices in Murdoch and major production facilities in Kwinana. We produce and distribute essential products for the agricultural, mining, construction and manufacturing industries and energy for households for cooking, heating and hot water.  

WesCEF is part of Wesfarmers Limited, a diversified conglomerate listed on the ASX and one of the nation’s largest employers with more than 120,000 employees.

Each of our nine businesses are recognised as safe, reliable and innovative organisations that are leaders in their respective industries with a strong commitment to their customers.

Our businesses include CSBP Chemicals (Ammonia, Ammonium Nitrate and other industrial chemicals), CSBP Fertilisers, Australian Vinyls, ModWood, Kleenheat, EVOL LNG, and our three joint ventures, Australian Gold Reagents (AGR), Covalent Lithium and Queensland Nitrates (QNP).

Our Team

WesCEF always seeks to be an employer of choice and we are very proud of our inclusive work culture which celebrates the uniqueness and diversity of individual talents, experiences and ideas.

As a portfolio of diverse businesses, we are also able to provide people with broad and exciting careers across commercial, operations and leadership areas, and multiple business streams without having to leave WesCEF.

We pride ourselves on offering flexible employment arrangements, and most importantly, we care about the health and safety of our people, as well as the environment and communities in which they work and live.
