W. L. Gore & Associates marks 12th year as one of Nation's Best

W. L. Gore & Associates, Inc., maker of GORE-TEX fabric and thousands of other innovative products, today announced it has earned a position on FORTUNE magazine's annual list of the "100 Best Companies to Work For" for the 12th consecutive year. Gore is ranked No. 15.

"Gore is honored to once again earn recognition as one of the best workplaces in America," says company president and CEO Terri Kelly. "Thanks largely to the pioneering corporate culture established by our founders more than 50 years ago, Gore is a place where innovation thrives and where every individual has the ability to contribute to the success of the enterprise. I strongly believe that our culture is our biggest competitive advantage. It directly contributes to our business success and drives associate satisfaction."

According to FORTUNE, a driving factor for the companies on this year's list is that they excel at creating jobs. Of the 100 companies on the 2009 list, 73 are currently hiring.

In his FORTUNE.com blog, Managing Editor Andy Serwer writes, "No matter what happens with the economy, the demand for talent will remain. Great companies know that super-motivated, happy, world-class employees are an incredible competitive advantage."

Gore is one of only a handful of companies to appear on all of the U.S. "100 Best Companies to Work For" lists since the rankings were introduced in 1984. This includes all 12 FORTUNE magazine lists and all three "100 Best Companies to Work For in America" books. For the past several years, Gore's facilities in the UK, France, Italy and Germany have also been named as one of the Best Companies to Work For in those countries.

Perhaps best known for its consumer products like GORE-TEX fabric and ELIXIR guitar strings, Gore is a leading manufacturer of thousands of advanced technology products for the electronics, industrial, fabrics and medical markets. The company is headquartered in Newark, Del., posts annual sales of more than $2 billion, and employs more than 8,500 associates in nearly 50 facilities throughout the world.
