History of 3M Medina
The 3M Medina facility was developed in the mid 1960’s. We were originally called Emtech Emulsion Technologies, Inc. It was a privately owned company with a rich history of working closely with customers. Its success was based on providing converter customers a breadth of full and narrow web products focusing on quality, customization and speed. 3M purchased Emtech on August 1, 2002 and the commitment to these principles is the reason for the plant’s long term success.
At Medina, we manufacture a wide variety of Performance Label Materials for industrial converters.
Our customers service end users in the Electronics, Transportation, Appliance, Sports & Leisure, Lawn & Garden, Healthcare and Office Supply markets throughout the world.
