3M recently announced that the company is breaking ground on an expansion at its Cordova, IL, manufacturing facility. The plant manufactures a variety of specialty chemicals and adhesives, including Novec™ brand products designed as a safe, sustainable chemistry to replace ozone-depleting substances (ODS) and potent greenhouse gases (GHG).

“The Cordova expansion represents a significant investment by 3M into U.S. manufacturing and supports sustainability due to the excellent environmental characteristics of the 3M Novec brand line,” said Joe Koch, business director for the Electronics Markets Materials Division. “The added capacity will allow 3M to stay ahead of market demand for sustainable chemistries, and it will help customers manage their environmental footprint by enabling replacement of ODS and GHGs.”
