In today’s vehicles, technology is taking the driver’s seat. Gore helps the auto industry prepare for the future with reliable products — like vents and fuel cell components — and is a forward-thinking partner in technology.
Cars have always been measured by their quality, convenience and reliability. Never has that been truer than now, when “auto” is the key term in the automotive industry. Cars now feature innovations like start-stop technology, self-park, adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring, lane-departure warning, wireless Internet connectivity, built-in apps and much more; self-driving cars are next. The future of the automobile may well be autonomy and connectivity.
Given these trends, auto manufacturers have dueling challenges: to quickly adapt these features into their models in order to keep up with the competition, and to take the necessary steps — and choose the best suppliers — to ensure their cars are 100% reliable when they switch lanes, change speeds and back into a parking spot.
Add these challenges to the ongoing pressures faced by auto manufacturers:
- reduce component and vehicle weight to increase fuel mileage
- shorten and simplify design cycles to meet customer demand
- incorporate new features, like built-in apps and other technological upgrades
- limit the consumer’s price point
- above all, mitigate risks that might lead to safety problems and recalls
From gas and diesel to electric and autonomous vehicles, technological advances have made this a time of great opportunity for the auto industry. To capitalize on these opportunities and still put out reliable cars that customers can depend on, manufacturers need equally reliable suppliers.

Reliable Partner, Proven Products
Gore provides the technological acumen, deep commitment to quality and wide range of products that help Tier-1, -2 and -3 manufacturers succeed in the auto industry. Spanning solutions for venting and fuel cell components, our products are present throughout the vehicle: in lighting, electronics, sensors, motors, the powertrain and the engine.
Our products are among the highest-performing, most reliable in the market — because we recommend and manufacture solutions that are tested, validated and approved for use. This is where technological acumen is critical to product success: If, for instance, a customer wants to protect their vehicle’s electrical system from moisture, we’ll assess every possible climate the vehicle may encounter, then develop the venting solution that will keep the system dry, wherever it travels, for the lifetime of the vehicle.
We perform several rounds of tests in our global plants so there’s never a question that our components will perform on the road. Manufacturers count on us to be problem-solvers on our end so they, and their consumers, won’t ever have a problem on theirs.
