Monroe, N.C. (April 26, 2018) – 3M Scott Fire & Safety is introducing its new brand name and logo at FDIC International 2018. Under the name 3M Scott & Fire Safety, the brand is showcasing the breadth of products, solutions, and innovations available to first responders as a result of the combination of two industry-leading companies, 3M and Scott Safety.
3M acquired Scott Safety and its self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) systems, thermal imaging cameras and other safety devices in fall 2017, complementing 3M’s extensive personal safety portfolio.
“The combination of Scott’s trusted, high performance safety solutions with 3M’s scientific innovation creates a powerful unit with fundamental strengths in technology, manufacturing and global capabilities,” said Jeff Emery, global business unit leader of 3M Scott Fire & Safety. “Re-branding the Industrial SCBA, Fire and Military & Civil Defense product portfolios as 3M Scott Fire & Safety represents us coming together ‘As One’ to deliver on our shared customer promise.”
This new permanent alignment to the 3M brand enables the 3M Scott product range to be represented both separately and as part of the wider portfolio of 3M personal safety brands. With similar brand identity colors, the new joint logo retains familiarity for customers with the two companies’ historic brands. The new logo will be incorporated at FDIC and on the company’s new website, www.3mscott.com.
“FDIC International is the perfect place to debut our new brand identity, while tens of thousands of firefighters are gathered to see, learn and experience what’s new in our industry,” said Emery. “We’re demonstrating to the fire services and other first responders that as 3M Scott, we have a shared commitment to providing a wide variety of innovative safety equipment resources to our customers. Our commitment to advancing their safety and performance remains the driving force behind our brand.”
