3M Window Film Expands Manufacturing In Asia-Pacific Region

3M Company has completed significant investments in the Asia-Pacific region with the scale-up of world-class manufacturing facilities in China and Singapore to support the growing window film business. The two locations will allow 3M to continue to meet customer needs, both in the region and worldwide, and to satisfy the growing demand for its automotive, residential and commercial window films. These new state of the art facilities are in addition to expanded capital investments made in their U.S. factories for clean coating and converting.

“3M’s investments in these new production sites are important to serve the growing needs and demand in the Asia-Pacific region. In addition to the plant investments, we continue to make substantial investments in research and development. The quality and quantity of exciting new products and technologies being developed in our labs is at an all time high and reinforces 3M’s strong commitment to innovation,” said Tim Thornton, Global Business Director, 3M Window Film, Renewable Energy Division.

3M’s Renewable Energy Division offers a robust portfolio of new and existing products, bringing more than 100 years of combined expertise in coatings, film, tape, adhesive and optical technologies to the rapidly expanding renewable energy and energy-efficiency markets worldwide. 3M’s state-of-the-art Weathering Resource Centers accelerate product testing to simulate the diverse and harsh environments in which our products are used. The company’s world-class R&D facilities enable 3M to work closely with leading national labs to develop and refine its energy conservation, energy generation, and sustainability technologies and platforms. 3M has expanded its global manufacturing capabilities for Renewable Energy Division products several fold in recent years to bring key products to commercial-scale production in response to these expanding markets as countries look for innovative and sustainable options to address their growing energy needs.
