Southwest Salt Company was formed in 2004 to develop a solar salt business near Carlsbad, New Mexico. It took several years and a tremendous amount of hard work to put everything together, but we are well on our way to seeing our full vision. We have put together a team of individuals with over 150 years of combined experience in the salt industry to ensure the success of this project, from plant operations and design, to handling, distribution and marketing.

In addition to the economic potential, developing this project delivers the environmental benefit of reducing the natural salt contamination to the Pecos River.

Removing the saltwater stream will significantly increase the value of the Pecos River water flowing through New Mexico and into Texas because of its enhanced potential as irrigation water. It is our hope that we can clean up the Pecos one load at a time!
