Products that Protect and Advance
At Milliken, we continually strive to provide innovative products and services to enhance our customer's continued long-term success. As we approach every new challenge, we collaborate with our customers to evaluate needs and then provide solutions by understanding their requirements while anticipating their future expectations.
Each of our products and technologies is a testament to how we consider sustainability an integral part of the innovation process. For example:
- We are not content to design a polypropylene clarifier that simply makes plastics more durable, lightweight and clearer; our Millad® NX™ 8000 goes a step further and saves manufacturers energy by allowing production at lower temperatures. Plus, our polypropylene products are sustainable and can be recycled.
- Our Creative Colorants have a list of competitive benefits for use as bright, vivid tints in children’s craft supplies, but as a non-toxic liquid colorant manufactured with no heavy-metals, our product greatly supports environmentally-conscious efforts by producers.
- Milliken has a commitment to innovative thinking that protects our environment, saves energy, reduces waste in manufacturing while providing a better quality end-product. It’s how we do good every day for our customers and our world.
Day by day, we look at our manufacturing practices, product life cycle, and supply chain to assess our net impacts and what we can do to reduce them. This has led to us to seek even greater efficiencies and develop entirely new technologies to avoid using harmful materials altogether.
Such attention to detail and commitment has helped all our manufacturing facilities to obtain the coveted ISO 14001 certification — the highest global standard for environmental responsibility. This company-wide commitment to excellence is also one reason why Milliken is one of the few companies in the U.S. to have received the Malcom Baldridge Quality and TPM awards — as well as the European Quality Award, the British Quality Award and the Canadian Quality Award.
