Who is 3M?

The 3M Company

3M is a Fortune 500 company with operations in 70 countries which brought in over $34 BILLION dollars in 2022 alone. More than 60,000 3M products are used in homes, businesses, schools, hospitals, and other industries.

Responsible for household names like Post-Its and Scotch Tape, 3M is much larger than it seems. The company actually produces over 60,000 products and has business groups focused on safety and industrial, transportation and electronics, health care, and consumer products. Their products can be found filling shelves for the construction industry, in most toolboxes or garages, throughout any healthcare facility you may visit, and many, many more places you may not expect.

Despite this success, there is a darker side to the brand. however. 3M has been sued many times for its unethical practices, and has faced allegations which include selling faulty safety gear to the U.S. military.
