Much more than a century ago, 3M began as a small-scale mining venture in Northern Minnesota, then simply called Manufacturing Company and Minnesota Mining. Today a worldwide powerhouse, our products enhance the daily lives of people around the planet.
But the success of ours, as well as longevity, weren’t apparent from the beginning. We used. We failed. We experimented with something totally new. Repeat cycle. Innovation, as well as perseverance, drove the founders of ours, and it will continue to drive 3Mers today.
