Safety has long held a place of importance in the way we conduct business. It is a core value at Milliken. We believe that each and every associate plays an active role in implementing and advancing our safety culture, a process we have honed through the course of our 153 years. Our dedication to safety is clearly articulated within our organization, but we refuse to be complacent. We are committed to furthering our knowledge on an ongoing basis.
With the changes the U.S.-based textiles industry has seen over the past century, Milliken knew our ability to thrive as a global innovations company depended on our ability to innovate practically on behalf of the markets and customers we served. Our innovations resonate within our industries because they are able to help solve everyday challenges. Many of Milliken’s leading innovations were developed as a way to solve a problem — using design as a key mechanism for an achievable outcome.
Milliken associates drive our company forward. From leading research and development efforts or helping create our next breakthrough product to connecting customers with tailored solutions, our associates exemplify the best of what Milliken has to offer through values-based business. Our ability to find, cultivate and retain top talent with integrity is a major factor in our ongoing success as a company.
Since the early 1980s, safety has played a prominent role in how we as a company do business. We find that, when they come to work in a connected, protected environment, our associates are able to focus on their roles and thrive in their professional careers. Safety is of foundational importance in achieving this ideal and is a tenant we carefully cultivate on an ongoing basis.
“We strive to be a company where every associate feels empowered, valued and engaged."
Each year, Earth Day is a call to recommit ourselves to caring for the planet we call home. More than 193 countries come together on April 22 to bring awareness to and build support for environmental protection measures.
Color is all around us, sometimes so seamlessly interwoven into daily life that we barely distinguish it as its own attribute. The role of color adds dimension, helps classify or categorize, enables performance or sometimes simply intensifies beauty; yet color is something that adds meaning in any context.
It can be easy for companies to say they are committed to integrity in business, but the power of ethics-in-action stories help to showcase that our word and our actions align in the truest sense. Our recognition as one of the 2019 World’s Most Ethical Companies is an important honor for Milliken as it supports our belief that ethical business practices matter.
Sustainability is a major consideration in today’s global marketplace. From the ability to design and produce eco-friendly products to the tangible improvements an environmentally responsible process can invite, sustainability carries with it a sense of doing right for the environment for the benefit generations to come.
