Salt and brine. It isn't just part of the Thanksgiving meal. It's also part of Sourcewell's recently rolled-out road safety products available on contract.

Cargill Salt and Henderson Products are re-awarded contracts in the ‘Salt, Brine, and Anti-Icing or De-Icing Agents, and Brine Production and Storage Systems’ category, while VariTech Industries is a newly awarded vendor.

Sourcewell Contract Administrator Clinton Strother says members can rest assured they are getting top-quality solutions and service through the three awarded vendors in this category.

“Each of these vendors are committed to helping customers find the best product for their respective needs,” Strother says. “In addition to the actual salt and brine products, these vendors also supply tanks, pumps, and application systems.”
