From glass maker to tech company how Corning reinvented itself with the changing times
13 Minute Video
Corning has been around since 1851. One of the companys earliest innovations was the bulb-shaped glass encasement for Thomas Edisons incandescent lamp ,and as electric light became commercially available, Corning figured out how to mass produce the bulbs bringing electric light to the world.
In the early 19002s, it discovered ways to make glass stronger and heat-resistant. This led to products like Pyrex and CorningWare.
Today, the company makes glass for cars, fiber optic cable and smartphones. Watch the video to learn about the companys 168-year journey from Pyrex to Gorilla Glass.
