For more than 160 years, Morton Salt has served as a symbol of excellence and a trusted authority on salt. Today, Morton Salt, Inc. remains a leading salt producer in North America.
Our consumer products include table and specialty salts, water softening products and ice melters. Morton also supplies salt to a wide range of industries, such as food and pharmaceuticals. Our ice control products include salt sold in bulk to municipalities, state departments of transportation, governmental agencies, and roadway maintenance contractors for highway and roadway de-icing during the winter weather season.
In the U.S., our products are marketed under the Morton® brand – along with the iconic Morton Salt Umbrella Girl and our famous slogan – “When It Rains It Pours®“, which are both registered trademarks of Morton Salt, Inc. In Canada, our products are sold by our subsidiary, K+S Windsor Salt Ltd., under the highly recognizable Windsor® brand and registered castle design.
Based in Chicago, IL, Morton Salt, Inc. and its subsidiaries employ nearly 3,000 people in the U.S., Canada and the Bahamas. In October 2009, we became a part of a group of companies led by K+S Aktiengesellschaft (the “K+S Group”), the world’s leading producer of salt and one of the world’s leading suppliers of standard and specialty fertilizers.
