3M Completes Acquisition of E Wood Holdings PLC


3M acquires E Wood Holdings PLC

As of May 1, 2007, 3M announced its acquisition of E Wood Holdings PLC - a manufacturer of high performance protective coatings for the oil, gas, water, rail and automotive industries – based at North Yorkshire, UK.

This acquisition provides 3M enhanced access to key markets, including the rehabilitation of existing oil and gas pipelines, and the protection and rehabilitation of water pipelines and infrastructure. The E Wood expertise in liquid technology for new pipes and rehabilitation coatings for existing pipes in oil, gas and water markets complements 3M’s core corrosion protection product offering of external powder coatings for new oil and gas pipelines.

While the Copon brand represents high-performance coatings from E Wood, the Thortex and Thistlebond brands include a range of industrial maintenance products for the long-term protection of buildings, structures and machinery operating in industrial and marine environments.
