With every great name beholds an even greater story line. Today we will focus on how the brand 3M came about. ¬†From the company’s original name, Minnesota Mining and Manufacturing, the name was shorted to 3M when the company changes its focus to innovative new products.

Five industrious and tenacious northern Minnesota businessmen with diverse occupations founded 3M. They financed the company to mine mineral for grinding wheel abrasives. Like many others in the early 1900s, 3M’s founders incorporated first and investigated later. In the face of failure, they persevered and turned their investment into a lucrative venture.
