20/10/2014 Northwest Manufacturing Exhibition a Success
We recently exhibited at the Northern Manufacturing exhibition for the first time. Our objective was to showcase 3M VHB tapes and the benefits against rivets and spot welds. We also took the opportunity to discuss with delegates our converted (or customised) tape service.
We made several contacts which we believe will benefit from converted tape, particularly 3M VHB. Converted tape can provide real cost saving opportunities against traditional mechanical fixings.
Here is our stand with Brian, Aaron & Andrew

28/5/2012 3M announce closure of Gorseinon Customer Service
3M announced the closure of the converted product sales office (full announcement detailed below). We are working with 3M to make sure the transition will be as smooth as possible, however if you have any concerns or which to talk this through in greater detail, please do not hesitate to contact us. We will be happy to quote any new or existing conversions that you have.
"Following a review of our 3M Converted Products operation, linked with a total review of the 3M Customer Service operations in the UK, the decision has been taken to close the Converted Products Sales Office based in 3M Gorseinon and withdraw from the direct sale of converted parts.
With immediate effect, any new enquiries for converted parts should be directed to a converter of your choice. We are able to assist in identifying a converter and where required, please contact your local 3M Sales Representative. Through the 3M Sales Team, we will continue to develop specification for converted parts with distributors/converters.
The office will remain in place in the short term to handle existing and repeat orders. Orders for new items which have been quoted for, will not be accepted. However, the 3M Gorseinon Office can assist in directing you to possible converter to supply these parts.
Further information will follow on the confirmed closure date of the 3M Gorseinon Customer Service operation and will include advice on how to re-source existing parts in the future.
3M Ireland Customers please contact your local representative to discuss options."
