Top 50 Fastest Growing Companies in Central Pennsylvania

Lancaster, PA – The Cope Company Salt, Lancaster, is proud to announce that it has been named to Central Penn Business Journal’s 19th annual list of the Top 50 Fastest Growing Companies in Central Pennsylvania.  This is the first time that Cope Salt achieved this milestone.

“We are proud to be recognized as a local growing company.  As an ice melt supply company, we experienced tremendous growth over the past two snow and ice filled winters.  Cope Salt was one of the only suppliers that had inventory for our existing customers as well as new customers.  Due to past supply shortages we have taken a proactive approach for this season and have already brought in inventory and have more coming.  We are confident that we will be the #1 supplier in the region again,” said John Connell, General Manager.

The Cope Company Salt demand continues to grow for their patented AUTOBrine® System, which is an automatic brine system that solves the problem of the time-consuming and costly task of managing water conditioning salt brine levels.  The AUTOBrine® System cuts costs and eliminates risks associated with handling heavy salt bags while reducing a company’s carbon footprint, which is why there has been 100% customer retention.

Cope Salt’s success has enabled them to give back to the community through their “In the Community” and AUTOGive programs which regularly donate thousands of dollars to non-profit organizations.  Learn more at
