3M says it’s on track with N95 production goals

N95 Mask

Henry Carlson Construction along with sister company, Kyburz-Carlson Construction, are expanding the 3M Plant in Aberdeen, SD to meet the demand for N95 masks due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

3M says it’s hit midyear goals for increasing U.S. respirator output as a new production line recently opened at one of the company’s Wisconsin factories.

The N95 respirators are vital for protecting health care workers from COVID-19, and with sharply rising demand, they’re boosting 3M’s sales in an otherwise dismal year for manufacturers.

To bolster U.S. production, 3M in June completed a new N95 mask production line at a Wisconsin factory that primarily manufactures equipment to make respirators. Eventually, that line will be moved to 3M’s Aberdeen plant, which is being expanded. Read the full story at the Star Tribune.
