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.
One such story is our recent inclusion on Proctor & Gamble’s 2018 Supplier Excellence Award list. Serving consumers around the world with trusted brands like Tide and Charmin, P&G relies upon a diverse group of more than 50,000 suppliers to provide leading products. Milliken is one of approximately 30 companies noted for their sustained business contributions in 2018.
Milliken is honored to be among P&G’s top 50 suppliers—a meaningful distinction due in large part to our emphasis on trust and transparency in our relationship. Through our dedication to providing top-level R&D innovation, technical support and customer service through our specialty chemicals division, Milliken enables P&G to achieve both product and cost innovations—critical components to P&G’s ability to offer its customer leading products worldwide.
Our chemical innovations themselves illustrate how products can help deliver sustainable and conscientious value for P&G, their customers and the world around us.
- Milliken’s specialty colorant Liquitint™ enhance the hueing and whitening power of P&G’s laundry detergents. By incorporating these colorants, P&G is able to deliver superior whitening technology to meet customer performance expectations and help promote cold-wash laundering to reduce a customer’s energy footprint.
- Milliken’s ClearTint™ helps P&G produce clarified Tide detergent caps, replacing the former opaque cap with a more sustainable, aesthetically pleasing option. These caps, formulated with end-of-life recycling in mind, improve customer experience and help improve dosing measurements, which translates into reduced produce waste.
Our collective passion for integrity in business and leading product development positioned the chemical division as one of the top specialty chemical manufacturers in the world—a point of pride cemented by receiving this prestigious P&G Supplier Excellence Award. Special congratulations to the Milliken P&G team on achieving this meaningful milestone.
