Today, we take for granted our "connectivity" – that is, our ability to seamlessly connect to the world and access information on virtually any subject, at any time, nearly any place. But in 1970, when Corning Incorporated scientists invented the first low-loss optical fiber, they could not have foreseen how dramatically it would revolutionize the telecommunications industry.
Throughout our history, we've been guided by an enduring set of Values that define our relationships with employees, customers, and the communities in which we operate around the world.
