Message from the plant manager

The 3M Guin Plant is an economic mainstay of Guin and of Marion County and we are proud to have celebrated our 55th anniversary here.

We are part of 3M’s Traffic Safety Systems Division and are helping to make roadways all over the world safer for motorists and pedestrians. The reflective sheeting and pavement marketing materials, as well as the glass bubbles and ceramic microspheres that we manufacture are sold globally.

Since we broke ground in 1954, our facility has expanded nine times and employment has grown eightfold. Our physical plant is now six times its original size.

We will continue to secure a bright future by focusing on our goals:

  1. Safety of ourselves and our environment
  2. Quality products and services
  3. Service to our customers
  4. Growth
  5. Cost reduction
