Company Summary:

W. L. Gore & Associates, Inc. is an American multinational manufacturing company that specializes in products that came from fluoropolymers. The company is a privately held corporation with headquarters located in Newark, Delaware. They are best known for developing the waterproof and breathable Gore-Tex fabrics.

W. L. Gore & Associates, Inc. was founded by Wilbert Lee Gore in 1958, together with his wife Genevieve Walton Gore. Bill Gore had spent more than 15 years with the DuPont Company working on different technical positions, which include fluoropolymer research. As he was working in his basement, he started to develop a method for insulating a number of parallel electrical wires by using polytetrafluoroethylene or PTFE. This is a fluoropolymer discovered in the walls of DuPont by a chemist. Wilbert’s son, Robert W. Gore, suggested a method for encapsulating wires and proved to be successful. This resulted to the birth of their first patent, the Multi-Tet cable, a multi-conductor ribbon cable that is used in computers, communications, and process control equipment.

Gore’s success is all dependent on the capability and creativity of their associates, which means that their benefit offerings and design show their value for their contributions. Gore benefit programs are comprehensive, and very competitive.
