The BlueRibbon Coalition is proud to welcome the GORE-TEX® brand as a sponsor of the BlueRibbon Coalition mission, vision, and values.
Although probably best known to recreationists for manufacturing the GORE-TEX® fabrics used in much of the quality outdoor gear we have all come to enjoy and rely on, W.L. Gore and Associates products provide innovative solutions throughout industry. From next-generation cable assemblies and components for the electronics industry including cell phones and GPS systems, to revolutionary medical products working in harmony with the body's own tissues, to setting the standard for outerwear comfort and protection in high-performance fabrics, all of their products are distinguished in their markets.
"Gore's high performance fabrics can be found in a broad range of jackets, gloves and footwear, and is used by a wide range of outdoor enthusiasts", said Yvonne Erickson, Gore Marketing Leader. "We recognize that all of these activities require land on which to recreate and we support access for all user groups. It's only natural therefore that we partner with BRC given their emphasis on ensuring that all enthusiasts have a place to recreate."
"I can't begin to tell you how much BRC appreciates the support of manufacturers like Gore," said BRC Executive Director, Greg Mumm. "It is ironic that Gore medical products were used in a surgery that allows me to continue to enjoy my love of riding and their high-tech products keep me comfortable and protected while I'm doing it. Their sponsorship of the BRC mission on behalf of recreation further demonstrates their commitment to their customers, and to responsible recreational access and management."
