A 3-form on a 6-dimensional manifold \(M\) is multisymplectic if it satisfies a specific non-degeneracy condition. At each point of \(M\), such a form gives rise to either a product structure, a complex structure or a tangent structure. In this paper, the author considers multisymplectic 3-forms inducing a product structure at each point and studies their integrability and adapted connections. The other pure cases are studied in other publications [N. Hitchin, J. Differ. Geom. 55, No. 3, 547–576 (2000; Zbl 1036.53042); J. Vanžura, in: Steps in differential geometry, Proceedings of the colloquium on differential geometry, Debrecen, 2000, 375–391 (2001; Zbl 1030.53077)].
