Manufacturing company 3M will be shutting down its facility in Enfield, company representatives confirm.
The company, based in Minnesota, has two other locations in Connecticut. The Enfield branch employs 142 employees – 118 production and 24 salaried – all of whom have the option of transferring to Stafford Springs or Meriden.
They can also apply to work at the Minnesota location, where the Enfield operations are being moved.
Representatives said it’s a result of company streamlining. The Enfield facility, located at 250 South Road, will be phased out by the end of 2014.
3M, formerly known as the Minnesota Mining and Manufacturing Company, makes products used in the communications, health care, security and transportation industries, along with home and office supplies.
