Morton Salt, Inc. announced this week it has signed a lease agreement to relocate from its Chicago headquarters to the new River Point tower under construction in the West Loop neighborhood.

The company says this move is part of a transformation strategy that included a brand refresh and the 100th birthday celebration of its Morton Salt Girl in 2014.

This new office space, occupying two floors, will join together 350 company employees.

"This is an exciting time in our history because the new headquarters location will truly reflect the Morton Salt of the future," said Christian Herrmann, company CEO.  "Our new headquarters space will be modern, open and high-tech, which we believe will ignite a more energized, innovative and collaborative workplace environment that our employees desire and deserve."

 The company is planning to move from its current location at 123 N. Wacker Drive to River Point in December 2016.
