Our commitment to explore, discover and create ways to enhance daily life provides a framework for life at Milliken. In working towards this commitment, we find that enhancing daily life takes many forms. As 2017 draws to a close, we reflect on some of the ways we achieved our goal this year - from developing the latest innovations you can trust to engaging with our associates and our communities for the betterment of the world around us.
Milliken innovation can be found all around you – sometimes, without your knowing – subtly enhancing your life through meaningful designs. From Creative Colorants that take the hassle out of art projects to Visa® fabric that helps you stay cool and comfortable, you often times come into contact with our innovations in ways unseen.
This time of year inspires the best in all of us – encouraging us to find special ways to give back to our communities or to bring joy to those who might need it most. For Lakessa Wright, giving is something she makes a priority – no matter the season.
Each day at Milliken brings new opportunities for our company to help make the world a better place for our associates, our customers and our communities.
It is important that we pause and say thank you. To our associates, we thank you for your passionate dedication to making our company its best. To our customers, we thank you for your trust in us to provide products and solutions for your everyday challenges. And to our communities, we thank you for providing a wonderful place to live and work.
We are grateful for each of you and wish you and your families a safe and memorable holiday.
In recognition of our commitment to innovative, forward-thinking products and practices, Milliken & Company was honored to accept the SC Branded Legends Award, given by the South Carolina Chamber of Commerce and The Brand Leader earlier this month. The Legends Award recognized Milliken & Company as a community-minded company dedicated to advancing innovation, and perpetuating the values of hard work and giving back.
“We designed the arboretum to be around for generations to come, as a reflection of the impact we have on the world.”
For Eduardo Torres, collaboration is how innovation thrives. Pulling from a multitude of disciplines and utilizing different approaches, Eduardo sees the impact of cross-functional skills coming together to exceed what was thought possible.
For more than 150 years, Milliken has been applying research and knowledge to create innovations that improve daily life. Through methodical application, we work to bridge problems with practical solutions that are both sustainable and socially conscious.
As a centerpiece of our global headquarters’ Customer Center, the Milliken coffee bar is a gathering point – inviting conversation among associates, customers, and guests.
When you stop to think about it, you come to realize how much of our lives are spent indoors.
