Minnesota Mining and Manufacturing (3M)

The company was founded in 1902 in order to mine for minerals used in the production of abrasive materials. By 1910, 3M started to attract investors, and by 1917, the company reached $1 million in sales. After 1950, Minnesota Mining and Manufacturing went global opening factories in Mexico, Canada, Germany, France, the United Kingdom and Australia. The company’s growth continues to this day with its product line still expanding. The products manufactured by 3M endangered the lives of the company’s workers and of the end consumers of products like asbestos containing adhesives, caulk and duct tape.

Although the majority of people who suffer from asbestos-related diseases have been exposed in the workplace, secondary exposure is common as well. If you are diagnosed with a malignant or non-malignant disease and have a family member who worked at Minnesota Mining and Manufacturing, there is a high chance your illness is the result of secondary asbestos exposure. Because most companies did not require employees to wear protective equipment on the job, you could have easily inhaled fibers of asbestos which remained on your loved one’s clothes.
