Marrakech – American company 3M will establish its regional hub in the city of Tangier, a city known for being a supply chain for North, Central and Western Africa. The platform will be operational by the end of 2015.
3M is a US scientific industrial enterprise, present in many strategic sectors in Morocco, including mining, health, automotive, infrastructure, security, border control, and banking technology.
By establishing a logistics center in Morocco, the company aims to strengthen its presence throughout the French speaking countries in North, Central and Western Africa. This presence will give it the opportunity to expand its supply line in the region.
The choice of Morocco is also due to its unique geographical position, its political stability, and its good business environment, especially in Tangier.

Present in over 70 countries around the world, the US conglomerate sells about 55,000 products, addressed particularly to industry, electronics, energy, safety, and health.
