3M, a global manufacturing company, announced plans to expand in Springfield, Missouri. The expansion represents $40 million in investment and is expected to add 90 new jobs to the region.
“We thank 3M for its decision to invest in Missouri and in our workers by creating dozens of new jobs,” said Missouri Governor Eric Greitens. “3M is a science-based global company that manufactures more than 50,000 products that people use every day. We hope 3M’s expansion of its adhesives and tapes division in Missouri sends a message to those in the business community– from the small family business to the major corporation– that we are going to work to help them grow and prosper.”
The expansion will upgrade 3M’s current plant in Springfield, where the company produces industrial adhesives and tapes for the aerospace industry and other heavy industrial customers around the world.
“This investment builds upon our 50 years of successful operations in Springfield and our commitment to the community,” said Frederick James, plant manager, 3M Springfield.
