Corning first introduced its damage-resistant Gorilla Glass a decade ago
Corning Inc. reported sales of USD 2.6 billion, up 4% from a year before, with the biggest boosts coming from its specialty-materials business, led by stronger shipments of Gorilla Glass.

The Corning, N.Y., company said it expects to meet or beat its 2017 sales guidance and increase its dividends by at least 10% in each of the next two years.
