Greenville County Benefits From Investment By 3M

Mar 19, 2019 10:12AM

Greenville County will benefit from 3M's $60 million planned capital investment over the next five years to increase its manufacturing capacity and enhance its infrastructure at its operations in Greenville. The company also plans to add five new positions.

The investment and expansion were facilitated by discretionary incentives approved by the Greenville County Council to encourage 3M to continue to grow and invest in the community, where it has been a model corporate citizen for more than four decades.

3M’s manufacturing facility at 1400 Perimeter Road in Greenville currently employs 500 people and has been a member of the Upstate business and manufacturing community for 45 years. 3M Greenville manufactures and distributes film, industrial adhesives, and other materials and products used in electronics, packaging, health care, and the automotive industry. Its employees are actively involved in the community, having contributed 1,300 volunteer hours in 2018.

“We’re always proud to celebrate a capital investment in South Carolina, but it’s especially exciting when it’s one of our existing firms, like 3M Company, that has decided to expand here,” said Gov. Henry McMaster. “I look forward to watching this innovative business continue to have success here in South Carolina and beyond.”
