We are Winter Management Pros who know a lot about keeping roads, parking lots, and sidewalks safe. It can get expensive, particularly when you use too much salt. Salt damages your property, impacts your budget and threatens water quality. We created the Sustainable Winter Management (SWiM®) to help you optimize your snow program, and use the right amount of salt to protect your property, keep your business open, and your roadways safe, while delivering direct benefits to your budget and the environment.
