3M is continuing its solar material expansion initiative with plans to construct a manufacturing plant for PV solar materials and renewable energy products in China’s Hefei High-Tech Park.

The new site, known as 3M Materials Technologies, will focus on the production of the company’s Scotchshield Film.

The company aims to break ground on the new plant during 2011’s second quarter with a two-phased construction period.

This is 3M’s ninth manufacturing facility in China.

“3M is committed to providing innovative renewable energy solutions to support our customers globally,” said Mike Roman, vice president and general manager, 3M Renewable Energy Division.

“We are excited about the collaboration with Hefei High-tech Industrial Development Area to help drive this initiative. The state-of-the-art Hefei facility increases our production capacity of 3M’s solar materials portfolio at a location that is close to local customers and at a time when renewable energy is setting a precedent for the future.”
