Gore has established a solid reputation as a product, industry, and technology leader worldwide for more than 50 years. A stable, privately held company, Gore believes in taking the "long-term view," investing in the future rather than relying on short-term thinking. Our success is a result of our unique culture, which inspires associates to explore, discover, and invent.
Gore sets high standards for its products and operations alike. The company has earned a reputation for integrity and ethical practices in its interactions with customers, suppliers, and the communities in which it operates. Gore's tradition of product reliability and integrity stems from the same fundamental commitment to fairness, a principle ingrained in Gore's corporate culture.
Here are some examples of the most recent recognition we've received:
