With summer now in view, winter weather conditions are probably the last thing on consumers’ minds, but North American Salt Co., a subsidiary of Overland Park, Kan.-based Compass Minerals, has been thinking ahead with the introduction of a complete family of Safe Step deicing products for residential use. The six-product line offers a broad range of capabilities and performance, along with a user-friendly package design that describes each product’s use and unique benefit. Available nationwide for the 2009-2010 winter season, Safe Step ice melters will come in multiple package sizes, including 8- to 12-pound jugs and 10- to 20-pound bags. Suggested retail prices range from $1.99 to $7.99. To learn more, visit www.compassminerals.com.
