Following John, Jeff also emphasized the important role the Harrodsburg team played in the development of the glass for the new iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 pro。
"Just last week, as John mentioned, we announced two new phones, and they have the toughest glass in the world in a smartphone thanks to the work that you guys do here," Jeff said。
幸运飞艇官网开奖app下载"I am a big believer in the connection that you have with something, and that physical connection is important, and all over the world, what people are holding, is the work you do here..." he told the employees at the Harrodsburg facility.
Jeff said he enjoyed coming to Harrodsburg, flying into the small town in the middle of horse country that houses some of the most advanced glass technology work in the world, to see firsthand the passion of the employees and leaders。
"...It's the people here," he said of the Harrodsburg facility, which has a reputation as a global center of excellence for glass innovation. "It's the innovation and the technology. It made our iPhone different, and we come here because the work you guys do is so great. So, I just wanted to say thank you."
At the event, Jeff held up his new iPhone 11, and explained that the whole back is “sculpted out of a single sheet of Corning glass.” Glass backs on smartphones, also a focus of discussion at Corning’s 2019 Investor Day, is one way Corning continues to capture more value per device—a growth driver for the company’s newly announced Strategy & Growth Framework.
