3M Angleton, Texas
3M Angleton is a manufacturing site for the Electrical Markets Division. We manufacture corrosion protection products to be used to coat metals, rebar and pipelines. The Angleton facility was chosen because of its proximity to our Gulf Coast region customers and major raw material suppliers. This is consistent with the division’s long held strategy of locating production near customers to reduce supply chain time and cost.
