3M Netherlands is part of the Central Europe Region together with Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Belgium and Luxembourg. In Delft we have our Customer Innovation Centre where we show the history of 3M, our 46 Technology Platforms, how they are connected and how we apply science into products that improve our daily lives and businesses. In Zwijndrecht (near Antwerp) we have a brand new Customer Training Centre. Here we provide training sessions for Abrasives, Safety, Automotive, Electrical and Tapes&Adhesives. We have standard training sessions, but also customer made sessions where customers bring their own products (or questions/problems). In this CTC we have a special area where we demonstrate and give training on fall protection. Please contact Martin Zwaart if you want to visit the CIC in Delft or the CTC in Zwijndrecht.
