3M to expand manufacturing

June 12, 2008

3M has announced its intent to build a new facility in Singapore to produce coatings for film-based products used in commercial, electronic and automotive applications.
“This investment brings us closer to our customers and creates a regional source of supply, which significantly simplifies our supply chain and helps us respond more quickly to our customers’ needs in the fast-growing Asia market,” said Kevin Kuck, vice president, 3M film manufacturing.
Construction on the new facility, which will be located in the Tuas Industrial Park, will begin in the second quarter of this year and is expected to be completed in 2009. 3M operations already in Singapore include a customer innovation center and the 3M Woodlands facility, which manufactures flex circuits and electronic adhesives.
