Who is 3M?

A Fortune 500 company, 3M is considered one of the largest in the United States with its more than 90,000 employees and $32 billion in annual revenue. Although 3M is an internationally known company today, it was originally founded in Two Harbors, Minnesota back in 1902. The 3M in the name stands for the original company name, Minnesota Mining and Manufacturing Company.

3M has become known for many exciting innovations over its long and storied history. Here are just a few:

  • The world’s first asthma inhaler
  • The first water-resistant sandpaper
  • The first reflective traffic signs
  • A colorfast theatrical blood
  • Post-It notes
  • Solid-colored gift ribbons
  • Double-sided tape
  • Surgical drapes
  • Scotchgard™ fabric and upholstery protector
  • Astronaut boots
  • 3M™ Thinsulate™ thermal insulation

And today, those products include a complete line of high-performance window films and graphics. To make sure those products are installed to meet 3M’s standards, the company offers a quality control program called 3M certification. To become 3M certified, installers need to undergo 3M’s specialized training and hands-on film installation instruction.

Benefits of 3M Certification

Here are a few of the best reasons to work with a 3M-certified installer:

  1. Warranty Protection: 3M provides special warranty coverage for products installed by 3M-certified installers.
  2. High-Quality Products: When you partner with a 3M-certified installer, you’ll get access to 3M specialty films you can’t get anywhere else.
  3. 3M Guarantee: When you work with 3M-certified dealers for printed materials and graphics, we’ll stand behind our products for between three and seven years depending on the product.
  4. Perfect Product Installation: With 3M training, you can count on your installation team to install products perfectly every time.
