In 2021, 3M celebrates 70 proud years of operation in Australia.

Our Australian story began on September 7th, 1951, in two small barn-like buildings on the outskirts of Lidcombe, NSW. The site was modest, with no telephones or amenities on-site. This site was used as a small office and warehouse for the marketing of finished goods, which were mostly imported from established plants located in other countries. The team – just three people and one lone office assistant, were grateful for the company of the Alsatian who resided at the neighbouring factory.

Later in 1953, 3M Australia moved to a site in St. Mary’s NSW where manufacturing commenced in early 1954. Tapes and abrasive conversion were the first products manufactured in Australia. The St. Mary’s plant showcased the very latest equipment available of its kind in the world, leaving overseas visitors impressed with the excellent set up of the production areas and high standard of cleanliness.

Today, 3M Australia operates across all states in Australia, with locations in Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide, Melbourne, and Perth and provides support to customers with a dedicated, nationwide sales team. 3M Australia offers training for customers and skilled trades students in Blacktown as well as personal safety product training for customers in Adelaide, Perth, and Brisbane.

Our two Australian manufacturing sites located in Blacktown (NSW) and Guilford (NSW) manufacture a wide range of filtration products and personal protective equipment as well as the conversion of adhesive tapes and retroreflective decal products.

Seventy years on, our Australian team of over 600 employees continue to improve Australian lives with science, and we continue to be an active Member of the Working at Heights Association of Australia.
