Alcore Corporation has long been a leader in providing high-quality, lightweight structural core materials to the aerospace, marine, construction, rail and industrial markets. With a wide variety of structural honeycomb core materials, Alcore can draw upon its broad engineering expertise along with sophisticated 5-axis CNC machining and added value processing to deliver solutions that are totally responsive to customer needs.
The origins of Alcore date back to 1958 when a forerunner company began manufacturing adhesives and honeycomb. Today the new Alcore is part of the The Gill Corporation Group of Companies. This not only provides Alcore with ready access to a full line of Nomex® and Kevlar® honeycomb core products, but also strengthens its worldwide network of customers and agents.
Today Alcore employs a workforce of approximately 250 people, with separate locations for metallic and non-metallic honeycomb operations located approx. 20 miles North of Baltimore, Maryland. Lean Manufacturing principles provide efficient work flow to reduce lead times, improve quality, and drive out waste.
