From the manufacturer
Here, our history inspires your future.
More than a century ago, 3M started as a small-scale mining venture in Northern Minnesota, then named Minnesota Mining and Manufacturing Company. Now a global powerhouse, our products improve the daily lives of people around the world.
But our success and longevity were not apparent from the start. We tried. We failed. We tried something new. Repeat cycle. Innovation and perseverance drove our founders, and it continues to drive 3Mers today.

We recognize the critical role design plays in every phase of the product development process—from ideas to solutions to disposal. This holistic approach and integrated thinking allows us to create meaningful brand experiences. The end result unites quality with purpose to create design solutions that are beautiful, functional, and help improve people’s lives everywhere.
