Professionals purchasing products engineered with GORE-TEX or GORE technologies can be assured of their quality. Based on our deep understanding of wearers' requirements, we test all of our products extensively replicating real-life situations, both in the lab and in the field. Our quality management continuously monitors the production of the laminate as well as the manufacture of the end product. For additional quality assurance, we only partner with reliable, licensed customers. By maintaining our partnerships, we also ensure expert advice, recommendations, technical support and consistent quality throughout the supply chain.
Our guiding principle is the “Fitness for Use” approach. Through our deep understanding of wearers' requirements, we tailor our high-value fabrics to their specific needs, with the conditions of their work environments in mind. To achieve this, we analyse the interaction between wearers, their environment and their protective clothing, including factors such as: the physical activity of wearers and duration of activity; heat balance/ perspiration; material specifications and the design of the garment; environmental factors such as heat, damp, cold, wet. In doing so, we provide dependable protection and products comfortable to wear, even in challenging circumstances. Or, in other words, we do our utmost to make sure our products perform as promised.
We at the Gore know about performance: For over 40 years, we have been designing durable products that are tested to the extreme and perform in the harshest conditions, enabling people to perform at their best. But durable product performance is no longer enough. As we face severe and growing challenges to our climate, environment and society, we are taking responsibility for our actions and contributions. Our performance depends on a healthy climate, a clean and thriving environment, fair labor conditions and safe working conditions. We are measuring our performance by our ability to protect people and the planet while prolonging the longevity of our products and promoting the wellbeing of individuals.
