ST. PAUL, Minn.--(Business Wire)--
3M Purification announces a robust support program for Authorized Water Quality
Dealers, featuring advanced marketing assistance and ongoing training
opportunities. With 3M`s help, water quality dealers can put these powerhouse
tools into practice to generate more attention and grow their businesses. The
company has also enlisted NASCAR star Greg Biffle to help get the word out at
the WQA Aquatech USA show, to be held this April in Indianapolis. 

The 3M Authorized Dealer Program focuses on three key benefits that 3M
Authorized Water Dealers gain from their affiliation with the company. First, 3M
brings its outstanding brand power to the partnership - customers know and trust
the 3M name for quality and reliability. Additionally, 3M assists its water
quality dealers with sophisticated marketing tools, including comprehensive
internet, print and e-marketing programs. This adds up to better visibility and
increased awareness of water quality dealers affiliated with 3M. Finally, 3M has
built its name based on its technology and innovation, so not only can
authorized water quality dealers take advantage of its industry-leading
technology today, but they can be confident 3M will make continuous innovations
to help them grow their businesses in the future. 

Additional benefits to becoming a 3M Authorized Dealer include exclusive
geographic territories, dedicated customer service for dealers and end-users, a
dedicated landing page on 3MWater.com, and ongoing training and development
opportunities to help water quality dealers stay on top of changes in the
industry. 

To help 3M Authorized Water Dealers gear up for another winning season, check
out NASCAR star Greg Biffle discussing the new support program here, in advanced
of his appearance at the WQA Aquatech USA show at 3M booth, number 1115, on
Wednesday, April 3 from 12:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. Biffle, driver of the No. 16 3M
Ford Fusion in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, will sign autographs and pose for
photos with visitors to the booth, and will also conduct three VIP
meet-and-greet sessions. VIP sessions will be awarded to three winners of a
drawing, to be selected from the names of water quality dealers who pre-schedule
a one-on-one session with 3M Purification reps during the WQA trade show. Water
quality dealers need to pre-schedule their 3M session by March 29 to be entered
into the drawing to win one of the three VIP meet and greet sessions with Greg
Biffle. One-on-one slots with 3M are limited, so interested water quality
dealers are encouraged to schedule in advance by calling 855-3M WATER.
Additional business card drawings will be held at the booth for autographed Greg
Biffle items.
