3M investing big in Wroclaw


3M, the US diversified industrial group, is pressing ahead with a major expansion of its manufacturing complex in Wroclaw, in the local sub-zone of the Walbrzych Special Economic Zone, as part of plans to increase its share in 3M’s total production in Central and Eastern Europe to 70% over the next five years.

The expansion involves several projects. Thus, on 8 November construction work got underway on a PLN 63m (approx. €16m) factory of catalytic converter gaskets, which is scheduled to start operations by mid-2011. By the end of next year the plant will employ 15 people, rising to 50 in 2012.

Furthermore, on 5 November the company received permission for an even bigger investment project in the zone. Under it, 3M will spend PLN 173.4m (€44m) to construct a factory of components for the electrical, aviation and wind energy sectors, such as resins, glues and tapes. The plant will employ at least 100 people.

The Wroclaw complex consists of several production plants making products for the medical, industrial and aviation sectors.
