50th Anniversary Open House Celebration

Cope will be hosting its Annual Open House Event on October 19th, 10am-2pm


In addition to our normal open house we will also be celebrating our 50th Anniversary!



Dr. John Scala, meteorologist on WGAL, News 8 Storm Team will be the guest speaker at this year’s event.  Dr. Scala comes with seasoned experience discussing and attesting to Winter Weather Hazards & Liability.

There will be a chance to win a free year’s supply of home water conditioning salt and many more drawings with a free lunch provided.

Cope Salt has partnered with the Lancaster Chamber to promote this educational event to help prepare the community for winter weather storms this season and to help prevent injury from slips, falls, and other weather driven incidents.  The Chamber will also be hosting onsite facility tours which will highlight Cope’s new brining system as well as Cope’s solar panels addition.  One of Cope Salt’s goals through our business initiatives is to promote a healthy environment.  We are proud to say that our facility is capable of providing its own electric year round.


Sponsors of the event this year will be Paradise Energy, offering a solar backpack drawing and Weaver Turf Power, offering an ice melt spreader drawing.


This is an event that you don’t want to miss.

The event will be held at our Lancaster location, 549 W. Roseville Rd, Lancaster, PA 17601.

Cope Salt Acquires A Salt Company

Cope Salt, Lancaster, recently acquired A Salt Company Inc, Wrightsville.  The acquisition will allow Cope Salt to provide its patented automatic brine delivery system, AUTOBrine®, to new businesses that use softened water such as retirement communities, car washes, hotels, office complexes, health centers, restaurants and schools.

“This merger helps further our business growth goals just as our expansion into Ohio, Indiana and Kentucky did in 2016.  Currently AUTOBrine systems are installed in 15 states and we are steadily looking for more opportunities to introduce companies to the best solution for brine used with water softeners,” said John Connell, General Manager of Cope Salt.

All operations and staff have been relocated from Wrightsville to Cope Salt’s Lancaster facility.  Former A Salt Company Inc owner, Ben Cope, will remain as a consultant during the transition period.  More information is available at

In addition to manufacturing AUTOBrine systems, Cope Salt is the area’s largest bagged salt supplier delivering to Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland and New Jersey.   Stocked salt products include water conditioning salt, food grade salt, ice melt products and pool salt.


Safe Ice Melt for Pets & Vegetation

Ice Melt around Plants and Pets

A winter storm is coming and you need a safe ice melt for pets and vegetation.  Commercial users don’t want to damage landscaping adjacent to roads, driveways, walkways and parking lots.  Residential users often ask for a product that is safer to use around pets.  Both types of customers are looking for an alternative to sodium chloride (rock salt).  While no ice melt comes without warnings, there are some that are kinder to our companion animals, gardens and grass.
