NEWS FROM IN THE SHOP & ON THE ROAD



THE 2014 3M TOUR
March 24, 2014

3M, our devoted sponsor, makes everything run smoothly in the Foose Design shop. We use their abrasives, sanding applications, paint spray equipment, masking systems, adhesives, coatings and sealants. We wouldn't be able to get a car done without them!
 
 
Chip has been spreading the word about 3M's key products and how he uses them in his shop across the globe for years. 2014 is no different, as the 3M Foose 2014 Tour will take him to a number of countries for a variety of appearances.
 
 
In January, Chip traveled to Norway and Sweden where he met the local 3M teams. He had a variety of customer events, product demonstrations and conferences. In February, Chip was in Puerto Rico for a 3M event hosted at the Museum of Transportation. During his 2 days there, he sat down with a number of body shops and 3M employees, took part in local interviews and did quite a few drawing exhibitions.
 
 
Chip will have a number of upcoming international appearances in 2014. As we get closer to the events we'll release all the details, including some of the fun promotions the various 3M affiliates are running.
