The Minnesota Mining and Manufacturing Co. – as the company was known, grew into 3M. What was born as a small-scale mining venture in 1902, has grown into a global powerhouse whose products improve the daily lives of people around the world.
We are a science-based technology company that is committed to improving lives and doing business in the right way – which is why we have been listed as a World’s Most Ethical Company for three years in succession.

Safeguarding the environment. And we have an insatiable appetite for meeting the world’s ever-changing challenges.
