Certificate Vignette 3M is a $16 billion diversified technology company with leading positions in consumer and office; display and graphics; electronics and telecommunications; health care; industrial; safety, security and protection services; transportation and other businesses. Headquartered in St. Paul, Minnesota, the company has operations in more than 60 countries and serves customers in nearly 200 countries. 3M is one of the 30 stocks that make up the Dow Jones Industrial Average and also is a component of the Standard & Poor's 500 Index. The company was founded in 1902 in Two Harbors, Minnesota by men who were looking to mine deposits of corundum (a mineral used in the manufacture of sandpaper and grinding wheels). After an early setback, the founders decided to switch from mining to manufacturing. The switch proved to be very fortuitous and the newly named 3M company evolved into a unique, innovative and diverse company as well as a world leader in the development and manufacture of a broad range of high-quality products. These include Scotchtape, Cellophane tape (sticky tape), window films and abrasives. Henry S. Bryan was a 3M co founder and the company's first president. He resided in Two Harbors, Minn. He was the Chief of the Motive Power at the Duluth and Iron Range Railroad. John Dwan a 3M co founder and the company's first secretary. He resided in Two Harbors, Minn., and was an attorney.
