3M Expands Valley, Nebraska, Production Operations

American multinational conglomerate 3M plans to expand operations in Valley, Nebraska. The $67 million project is expected to create 40 jobs.

The investment will include new production lines, equipment and a warehouse, creating additional manufacturing capacity for the company’s reusable respirators and PELTOR hearing protection products.

"3M has been a part of Valley and the greater Omaha business community for 45 years," said Matt Huset, plant director at 3M's Valley plant. "We're proud of the role we play in Nebraska's success and pleased that we could work with state officials to make this expansion happen."

The project is being supported by the ImagiNE Nebraska Program, a tax incentive-based program.

"Congratulations to 3M on a successful expansion in Valley," noted K.C. Belitz, director of the Nebraska Department of Economic Development. "In addition to offering great career opportunities, 3M generously contributes to the community. The Department has enjoyed working alongside company leaders to support 3M's growth in the Good Life. Nebraska boasts a world-class workforce and supportive business climate that make it highly attractive for companies to invest in our state."

3M has operated its facility in Valley since 1979.
