Don't Mean to Shock Ya, but 3M Static Control is Now SCS

3M Static Control is now SCS. SCS is a brand of Desco Industries, Inc., who purchased 3M's Static Control business on January 2, 2015.

The SCS brand will use the same part numbers, offer the same quality products at the same pricing, and serve their customers by the same people at 3M's existing Sanford, NC facility. SCS offers the same professional-quality static-control products including Air Ionizers, Anti-Fatigue/Floor/Table Mats, ESD-Safe Garments & Safety Gear, Personal Grounding items, Static Shielding Bags, Tapes, Striping & Adhesives, Test & Measurement Equipment, and many more.

At QSource.com, you'll find more than 800 products of the former 3M Static Control in our new SCS Department. If you've regularly ordered a particular 3M part, there is no need to change the part number. Everything remains the same…just a new name.

To purchase SCS products, please visit our SCS page at QSource.com. For further information, you may also contact Q Source by phone (800-966-6020), email, or via our Web site.
