    Our History

    Established in June 1967 as Minnesota (3M) Sdn. Bhd., the company first housed 9 employees and all its inventories in a 1,500sq.ft.room.

    In just over 3 months after its establishment, the company relocated to bigger premises with proper warehousing facilities in Ampang, Kuala Lumpur to accommodate its expanding operations. By 1971, extensive renovations were carried out to accommodate the rapid growth and the subsequent increase in employees.

    Then in 1972, the company's name was changed to 3M Malaysia Sdn. Bhd. to reflect its international image. In the same year, 3M Malaysia was awarded three 3M International recognition for achieving outstanding performance.

    Despite rising levels of competition over the years, the company has continued to undergo rapid expansion. By delivering unparalleled quality, value and service, 3M's product diversity and technological expertise have helped it gain a reputation as a total solutions provider that it is known for today.
