Guaranteed mobility throughout Switzerland – even during the coldest season of the year: adequate quantities of our TAUFIX® de-icing salt are always available.
De-icing salt is a seasonal product, so its consumption depends on the weather and is difficult to estimate. We use about half of our annual salt production (totalling as much as 530,000 tonnes) to manufacture our TAUFIX® de-icing salt. As winter begins, the salt is placed in readiness in various storage halls and Saldomes, and most of it is distributed by rail. In this way, we guarantee that the whole of Switzerland is reliably supplied with de-icing salt – even during long periods of heavy snowfall in winter.
However, TAUFIX® is more than simple de-icing salt – the name stands for a complete system of products and services that guarantee reliable supplies and ensure that handling is both flexible and convenient.
