Additional Information

3M is planning to group all of its synthetic plaster manufacturing activities, currently scattered over three continents, in Wrocław. "In the first stage, we will shift production from France to Wrocław. When this line begins to function properly, we will do the same with the Californian plant. Finally, the production line from Japan will be moved over here," said Piotr Freyberg, general director of 3M Poland. The investment will be worth some 30 million dollars.
