About 3M Abrasives

The world has changed a lot since 3M was founded in Two Harbors, Minnesota, as an abrasive company in 1902. The company that sprung from a small abrasive business has become one of the world's most trusted and admired corporations with
$30 Billion in sales, 88,000 Employees worldwide and Operations in 70 countries.

But much has remained constant, like 3M's commitment to producing quality abrasives and innovative solutions designed to help its customers succeed. Also unchanged are customers demands for perfect surfaces. 3M remains prepared to meet those demands with its full line of coated abrasives, surface conditioning products and an expanding line of technically-enhanced powertools and quality super- and bonded abrasives. Look to 3M to bring productivity to surface modification processes, setting the pace for yet another century of abrasive advancements.
