Eyes on Gore’s Approach to Innovation
Building on our Natural Curiosity and Imaginative Spirit
For more than 60 years, Gore has harnessed the natural curiosity and imaginative spirit of our Associates to create products that make a difference in the world. And Bloomberg Businessweek recently took notice, exploring Gore’s inventive history as well as modern day ventures — and showing that our commitment to innovation is as strong as ever.
GORE Low Pressure Evacuation Vents
Enabling lighter leaner battery packs in electric cars
The number of newly registered electric vehicles worldwide exceeded the two million mark in 2018. Powered by lithium-ion batteries, they offer a clean alternative to combustion engines. A new Gore vent reduces the weight and cost of next generation lithium-ion battery components and provides prompt relief of pressure build-up. It also protects against dust, dirt and water that could otherwise result in electrical issues and battery failure.
Gore Cables Made It to the Moon
One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind
Fifty years ago, Gore’s technology played a significant role in the historic Apollo 11 mission. Our wires and cables helped Buzz Aldrin, Neil Armstrong Jr. and Michael Collins get to the moon, gather data aboard the lunar surface and navigate home safely.

Have you ever dropped your new phone and cracked the screen? It’s never a good feeling to lose something of value. Now imagine if that something was worth thousands to millions of pounds and had the potential to change lives. That’s what drug manufacturers stand to lose if a single-use bulk drug storage bag — holding biologic substances — is damaged. A new solution from Gore addresses this issue.
Gore has announced that complimentary samples of GORE® Tethered Drone Cables are now available with short lead times and can be shipped within two business days from the date of the request
Your work at Gore can change lives. Perhaps your own.
