Posted on Oct 5, 2016 8:37:33 AM, by Mollie Williams

For more than 150 years, Milliken has combined science, design, innovation, and creativity to develop technologies and products that enhance our daily lives, improve health and safety, and make the world more sustainable. 

Today, our team at Milliken Autovation has harnessed the power of over a century and a half of innovation and expertise to deliver the highest quality products for the automotive non-woven industry. Cutting-edge technologies, proprietary processes, and forward-thinking techniques set us apart. Our products have found their way into some of the most recognized brands in the world – including Fiat Chrysler, Ford, GM, Honda, Hyundai, Mercedes-Benz, Nissan, Toyota, and many others. 


In response to a growing consumer demand, Milliken recently opened a new manufacturing plant in Mexico, which spans 105,000 square feet. The new facility will allow our team to produce the highest quality automotive non-wovens across North and South America with unparalleled speed and efficiency. 

In an increasingly competitive marketplace, our team is thinking ahead and executing on industry-leading technologies that solve the market’s greatest needs.

Our patent-pending Autovation products include:

  • MaxLight: Our proprietary fiber blends, composite layers, and tunable NVH performance enhance a range of products that is up to 30% lighter. Better aesthetics and less weight improve automobile seating, floors, and underbody.


  • MaxQuiet: Having mastered sound absorption at lower frequencies, we offer superior acoustic performance at the weight of conventional absorbers in automobile seating and sound absorption layers.


  • MaxStrong : Through interfacial chemistries and engineered matrix properties, our latest surface chemistry delivers a variety of wear-resistant, longer lasting products. Automotive underbodies, cargo, and floors benefit from more durability, less weight, and greater sustainability.


  • TravelTough: Our latest patent-pending technology dramatically reduces moisture absorption by six times and prevents ice from attaching to and damaging cars – for noticeably tougher products.
