Corning Opens Technology Center in Berlin

September 21, 2012

Corning Inc. recently hosted a ceremony marking the opening of the Corning Technology Center Berlin, located in the Adlershof Science and Technology Park. Through the establishment of this technology center, Corning will reportedly be able to pursue faster innovation, build on its commitment to customer collaboration, and engage in a mix of potential industrial, academic, and technology activities.

The new center is home to Corning Cable Systems’ Germany-based members of Corning’s global Technology organization. Its Adlershof Park location will allow the center to be accessible from Corning Cable Systems’ lead commercial office for Europe, the Middle East, and Africa, also located in Berlin.

“Innovation has been a Corning hallmark for more than 160 years,” said the event’s keynote speaker Wendell P. Weeks, chairman and CEO. “We have been a pioneer in the field of telecommunications since Corning scientists invented the first low-loss optical fiber in 1970. In the 42 years since then, we have produced a steady stream of innovations that increase the efficiency and reduce the cost of optical networks. Yet, we have barely scratched the surface in terms of unleashing the massive capacity and lightning-fast speeds that fiber-optic networks can deliver. This center will help us create next-generation technologies to enable the on-demand information that consumers and enterprises value.”
