Company Profile 

3M was founded in 1902 when its five founders were trying to harvest corundum from the Crystal Bay mine. Despite the fact that not much corundum was produced from the mine, a spirit of collaboration and innovation and was born, to which the brand owes its success. Recently, the company made an announcement that it expects to invest 1 billion dollars over the next twenty years to accelerate new environmental goals.

Small Start 

About a century ago, 3M started as a small-scale mining venture in Northern Minnesota, then named Minnesota Mining and Manufacturing Company. Now, the company's product helps improve people's daily lives worldwide.  


Humble Beginnings 

From humble beginnings in 1902 to a Fortune 500 company, the company's founders had a simple goal: to mine for a mineral called corundum, ideal for making grinding wheels and sandpaper. As it turned out, what they thought was corundum was another low-grade mineral called anorthosite.

Innovation and Perseverance 

Today, more than 60000 3M products are used in businesses, homes, schools, hospitals, and other industries. One-third of our sales come from products invented within the past five years, thanks to innovations from hundreds and thousands of scientists and researchers the brand employs worldwide.
