What’s strong, innovative and likes bananas? Gorilla Glass. (OK, we made up the banana part.)
Gorilla Glass has been used on more than 6 billion smart phones worldwide, and it was developed at a Corning plant in Harrodsburg, Kentucky. In fact, Fast Company recently named Corning as one of 2019’s “most innovative companies” for the continued innovations surrounding Gorilla Glass.
Corning is based in New York, but the Harrodsburg, Kentucky, location is considered its “most experienced” North American location. Opening in 1952, it originally made high-quality lenses for binoculars and other products that were cutting-edge for the time.
