3M to expand superabrasives manufacturing operation

November 27, 2006

St. Paul, Minn.-based 3M recently announced plans to expand manufacturing operations for its superabrasives business. Operations currently housed in a small facility in Whippany, New Jersey, will move to a larger 3M facility in Flemington, New Jersey. All employees from the Whippany operations will be offered employment in the upgraded Flemington facility, located approximately 35 miles from the current location.

The transition of operations from Whippany to Flemington is scheduled to begin in the spring of 2007 and be completed by early in the fourth quarter. The company's existing medical products manufacturing operations in Flemington will continue to be located there.
