Who We Are

For nearly 25 years, Filtrete filters have delivered cleaner air to millions of homes, becoming a leader in residential air filtration. As a result, Filtrete is the most trusted brand* of indoor air cleaning filters on the market today.

Developed by 3M engineers to help capture airborne allergens, the Filtrete filter media is electrostatically charged to act like tiny magnets to attract and capture microscopic particles from the air as it passes through the filter. Today, a dedicated technical team continues to develop innovative filtration solutions for around the home, including air cleaning filters, room air purifiers and water filtration products.

Materials used in Filtrete™ filters are supplied from 3M manufacturing facilities and suppliers located in the United States and, in some cases, outside of the United States. Filter assembly locations vary by product type or manufacturing technology and this is communicated on the country of origin statements on the product packaging.

3M is a recognized leader in research and development, producing thousands of innovative products for dozens of diverse markets. 3M's core strength is applying its more than 40 distinct technology platforms – often in combination – to a wide array of customer needs. With $23 billion in sales, 3M employs 75,000 people worldwide and has operations in more than 65 countries. For more information, visit www.3M.com.
