Corning, Inc. is an American multinational corporation that specializes in glass and ceramics technology. It was founded in 1851 by Amory Houghton Jr. (for whom the company is named) as one of the first manufacturers of light bulbs. Corning Glass Works initially started off producing various types of glass products including wine bottles, insulators, laboratory equipment, and kitchenware. In the 1960s, Corning began diversifying their portfolio from consumer goods to high tech components such as optics for NASA 's Apollo program and weaponry systems for the U.S. Military. In 1985 they expanded further into electronics when they purchased Semefab from Honeywell which became a subsidiary under the name of Vetco Gray. Corning had been accused of lowering their prices below market value in order to weaken competitors. In 1993, the U.S. Government accused Corning of violating antitrust laws and breaching contracts with its competitor, Coors. Since then, Corning has been publicly traded on the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker symbol GLW and is a Fortune 500 company.
