Founded in 1902 in Two Harbors, Minnesota, 3M
is a company specializing in the production of adhesive films and coatings for the building industry
. The lucky trend of 3M begins with the exploitation of a corundum mine, an aluminum oxide belonging to the group of hematites, by five businessmen. The first product produced and marketed is an abrasive paper, followed by adhesives, masking tapes and insulating tapes for the management of electrical cables. Today, 3M, with more than 105,000 registered patents, has offices and factories all over the world, and offers innovative solutions in a wide range of sectors, including construction, graphics, design and consumerism. Among the most well-known household products are Scotch® adhesive tape, Post-it® adhesive sheets, and abrasive paper sheets. The 3M Italia division has a consolidated presence for more than sixty years, with two offices, one in Pioltello and one in Rome in Palazzo Odescalchi, a distribution center, two production units, an Innovation Center and six Customer Technical Center. The 3M design division collaborates with designers, architects, creatives and professionals to create innovative, high-quality products for the construction and design sectors.
