The Canadian Salt Company Ltd



Company Overview:

Shaking up the industry.


It was 1893, in
Windsor ( Ontario), when three employees of the Canadian Pacific Railway Company (C.P.R.) began a subsidiary they called The Windsor Salt Company Limited. Within a few years, the fledgling operation was sold and became The Canadian Salt Company Limited. Over the years since, the Company has changed hands at least twice, but it has remained a leader in modern salt processing methods, and now it's Canada's largest salt manufacturer.



The Company is engaged in the recovery, processing and sale of salt, and provides over 200 evaporated and rock salt products under its well-known
Windsor and Safe-T-Salt brand names.



Products made from evaporated salt (salt recovered from brine) are used in household and food products, as well as for agricultural, water softening and industrial purposes. Those made from mined rock salt are also sold to household and industrial markets for ice control, and to the water softening and general industrial trades.



It will come as no surprise that government agencies are among the largest users of the Company's products for highway ice control.



The Canadian Salt Company Limited, also known as Windsor Salt, is a part of Morton International Inc., located in
Chicago, Illinois. Together, we employ close to 3,000 people in our salt mines, production manufactories, warehouses and offices throughout the United States, Canada and the Island of Inaqua in the Bahamas.

The Canadian Salt Company Ltd is headquartered in Pointe-Claire (Québec) and employs some 861 people in its three regional sales offices, four evaporated salt plants and three rock salt mines, as well as across its Canada-wide network of warehouses and salt storage facilities. Its distribution centres are strategically located to serve Canada's geographically dispersed markets, employing truck, rail and marine transportation.

Finally, the Company adheres strictly to rigorous industry standards and, with the latest production and laboratory facilities, ensures quality salt products for ever-increasing consumer and industrial markets.
