Focused Portfolio Strategy

We are best-in-the-world in three core technologies, four manufacturing and engineering platforms, and five market-access platforms. Corning directs 80 percent or more of our resources to opportunities that draw from at least two of these capabilities sets. We believe this approach increases our likelihood of success, reduces the cost of innovation, creates higher barriers to entry for our competitors, and ultimately delights our customers.

“The core of what we do is invent, make, and sell,” said Wendell P. Weeks, chairman and chief executive officer. “We create value by inventing category-defining products, developing scalable manufacturing platforms, and building strong, trust-based relationships with customers who are leaders in their industries.”

Ceramic Science

Ceramics might be thought of as the close cousin of glass. With the right composition and forming, both can be extremely hard and resistant to thermal shock, suitable for use in harsh environments like outer space.
