LAS 3M Visit

Today I joined the Programmes and Social Committee, LAS for a tour of the 3M Woodlands and 3M Yishun Facilities.

Date: 9 July 2009 (Thursday)

Time: 12.45 – 6.15pm

The itinerary for the 3M visit:

Meeting point is at Admiralty MRT Station Taxi Stand.
At 1.00 pm, a bus took us to the 3M Woodlands Staff Shop (purchase 3M items at a discount) and later to 3M Yishun facility.

I was impressed by the variety of items 3M produced worldwide. The group is about 33 members and most of us took the opportunity of the visit and bought some 3M products.

Thanks to Mustafa Bin Mahadi, who co-ordinated the tour for LAS and reminded us to bring cash for shopping!

I was one of the four lucky draw winners and brought home a stationary set (3M tape plus dispenser and a set of post it notes.)

By the time we finished the visit and listened to all the 3M stories, it was 6.15pm.

It was a very fruitful day and we wonder why we never thought of visiting 3M all these years.

The visit is highly recommended for LAS members. If you missed this round, look up for the next one.
