3M, Bozzetto Form Distributor Agreement

November 25, 2008

Deal covers 3M's apparel and related accounts.

The 3M Protective Materials business has entered into a distribution agreement with Bozzetto, Inc., a producer of chemical products for the textile industry located in Greensboro, NC. Bozzetto, Inc. will manage the majority of 3M’s U.S. apparel and related accounts.  Bozzetto’s industry expertise will provide customers with more seamless sales and technical service coverage.

“We have already established a distribution relationship with the parent company, The Bozzetto Group., across much of Europe and Asia, so this was a natural extension to our global apparel business,” said Mitch Culbreath, New Business Development manager for 3M Protective Materials.

“Because we know and understand each other’s products well, Bozzetto, Inc. can offer stain management and repellent materials, plus a set of their auxiliaries that are compatible with our materials.  Teaming with Bozzetto is a winning solution for our mill customers,” Culbreath said.
“Bozzetto, Inc. and the Bozzetto Group are proud to work side by side with 3M Protective Materials in this new arrangement. We will pursue new avenues for our products as well as 3M’s in garments, fabric finishing, technical textiles and upholstery,” said Gregg Jones, president of Bozzetto, Inc.

The agreement became effective November 1.
