When some of the world’s most groundbreaking industries face deep challenges, they turn to Corning to help find solutions.

For more than 165 years, Corning innovators have taken on product design and manufacturing problems that seemed insurmountable. Their inherent curiosity and understanding of material science and process have unlocked amazing new glass properties. As a result, our customers have been able to launch revolutionary new products and entirely new markets.

The light bulb…mass-produced television glass…clean-air filters for engines…optical fiber…substrates for stunning displays…glass packaging to make pharmaceuticals safer than ever before. All these innovations, and many more, have grown from that crucial moment when customer and Corning teams sat down together to examine the challenge at hand.

The results, year after year, have been phenomenal. Here’s how some of today’s customers describe their partnerships with Corning.
