Additional Information

3M Poland is going to build a production plant of optical foil for LCD monitors in Wrocław. The plant is supposed to start operating in March 2007. 3M Poland plans to employ initially 100 persons and augment employment gradually as the plant develops. Wrocław has been chosen for the plant’s location due to the close vicinity of key customers such as LG Philips and Sharp. The company will start the production in December 2007.
