The focus on STEAM education is incredibly important in building the next generation of innovators. Careers in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) are growing in need. Adding the Arts in the STEM equation to equal STEAM introduces a new level of creativity and perspective for problem solving – something we champion at Milliken to design meaningful innovations that ‘do good.’ In our own experience, melding diverse disciplines can result in creativity never before possible.
As the weather improves and we book our calendars with outdoor activities, these five Milliken innovations are making spring activities, from school field trips to long-weekend road trips, more accessible, colorful, and environmentally conscious.
As Milliken enters its 152nd year with a continuing vision to create ground-breaking innovations that change the user experience, we are excited to announce Keystone Aniline Corporation as a new member of the Milliken family of companies.
The stories of our early, industry-leading innovations still make an impact today. Since 1865, Milliken has been innovating to do good for the world and create a new level of experience for our customers. Our diversified portfolio of meaningfully designed products is derived from our team’s ability to combine unique insights with our extensive knowledge as scientists.
Subfloor moisture is a $1 billion issue every year in commercial buildings. A result of rising water tables and/or improperly cured concrete subfloors, it’s also the leading cause of flooring failure - flooring that has peeled or buckled, has mold and mildew, or has loosened from the subfloor.
As staycations and working from home become increasingly more popular, the phrase “home is where the heart is” rings truer than ever. A home is a reflection of one’s personality, one’s priorities, and the products that we fill them with impact our lives in both big and small ways.
Whether you’re partnering with NASA to help research and develop industry-leading flame-resistant textiles or bringing chemicals to market that make manufacturing more environmentally friendly, being part of an innovative company can be incredibly exciting and meaningful for one’s career. But how do you stand out among a pool of applicants and secure an incredible opportunity at a forward-thinking organization?
High-quality healthcare deserves high-quality innovation. From antibacterial fabrics to technically superior wound dressings, the quality and safety of materials in our healthcare facilities are essential.
The average person takes 23,040 breaths a day - in our homes, at work and school, and in the larger home we share, Earth. For up to 90 percent of them, we are indoors. From the floor coverings on which children play to the couches families curl up on to watch the latest blockbuster, the quality of the everyday materials that we surround ourselves with is ever more important.
For the last few months, we have enjoyed exploring the various ways Milliken innovation touches our daily lives. From routine activities to intricate operations, Milliken technologies advance the way we live, work, and play. Join us as we reflect on #EverydayMilliken on our Facebook and Twitter.
