CorningWith more than 160 years of materials science and process engineering knowledge, Corning is the world leader in specialty glass and ceramics. While it’s famous for the Gorilla Glass used in iDevices, Corning is equally laudable for the Willow and Lotus glass screens used in some of Samsung’s extraordinary smart phones.

Corning is more than just screens, though. It’s also a leader in clean-air technology, as its products form the core of world-class pollution control systems for both stationary and mobile applications. These products include light-duty gasoline and diesel passenger cars and trucks, as well as heavy-duty diesel on-road and non-road vehicles. As for extreme applications, Corning created the windows on the space shuttles.

But wait, there’s more! Corning also uses its telecommunications innovations, like its cable systems, optical fiber and its Corning Gilbert – which is a world leader in RF connectivity – to provide customers with solutions that bring broadband to their doorsteps. Corning is also heavily invested in providing tools and solutions for life science research and bioproduction.

Now that you know exactly what specialty glass and ceramics are, and just how often you use them, take a second to think about just how many ways Corning has impacted your life. Whether you’re driving to work, checking Facebook on your phone or floating around in outer space – okay, two of those are more likely than the third – chances are good you’re sharing your space with something Corning has helped make … or make better.
