3M ESPE Investor Logo


What was born as a small-scale mining venture in 1902 has grown into a global powerhouse whose products improve the daily lives of people around the world. When the Minnesota Mining and Manufacturing Co.—as the company that would grow into 3M was known at the time—began more than a century ago, the five founders had a simple goal: to harvest a mineral known as corundum from a mine called Crystal Bay. With operations in 70 countries and sales in 200, the global 3M team is still committed to creating the technology and products that advance every company, enhance every home and improve every life.

At Align Technology, we believe a great smile can transform a person’s life, so we create technology that gives people the confidence to take on whatever’s next.

We revolutionized the orthodontic industry with the introduction of the Invisalign system, and we have never lost sight of that spirit of innovation. Our teams are constantly pushing the boundaries of what’s possible—from 3D printing technology to new aligner materials and new software algorithms that determine the optimal way to move teeth digitally—with one goal in mind: to help you get the smile you want.

GC manufactures about 600 types of products and sells them in more than 100 countries around the world. Due to differing requirements in the various overseas markets, GC has very deliberately localized its European, US, and Asian operations. GC has lost no time in optimizing its on-site activities, while at the same time fulfilling its obligation as a local enterprise to actively participate in each country’s dental industry associations.

At Cranberry, we stress utmost importance on providing products of superior quality. Therefore, we constantly strive to develop products with the highest protection, comfort, and strength. After thriving in this industry for so many years, we truly understand your needs and demands as a professional. Be assured that our dynamic team is always moving forward, researching, and seeking to provide you with only the best.


Always Setting the Bar Higher
