Remembering a Pioneer
We mourn the loss of our chairman emeritus Bob Gore. As son of our company founders, Bob shaped W. L. Gore & Associates from the beginning. His scientific discoveries spawned GORE-TEX® Outerwear and changed countless lives and industries. Bob’s impact will live on, and we will continue to work each day to build on his legacy.
Remembering a Pioneer
“We plan to leave a legacy to society and to future generations: infants with surgically reconstructed hearts that live because of our medical products; governments of free societies that are better able to protect themselves because of defense products; communities with cleaner and healthier environments because of our filtration and sealant products; And yes, people that just have more fun in the outdoors because of our GORE-TEX® Outerwear.” -Bob Gore
W. L. Gore & Associates
A materials science company focused on discovery, product innovation and rewarding careers for our Associates.
Combining industry expertise with product versatility, we create solutions for the most challenging environments — from implants in the human body, to clothing worn on expeditions to Mt. Everest, to electronic cables transmitting signals from Mars.
