Life at Milliken

"Play is the exultation of the possible." – Martin Buber
While no day is the same at Milliken, every day is spent with a purpose and passion for making the world a better place, in ways both big and small. It’s a way of being  that combines Deep Science, Meaningful Design and Unique Insights to open our minds to the possibilities all around us. To consider challenges with fresh approaches and vigor. It is the way we solve problems. It is what makes our company unique.

We’ve even given what we do a name: Purposeful Play. Why play? The spirit of play invigorates the curiosity to discover, the liveliness to imagine, and the will to take initiative. The openness of play encourages transparency, trust and risk-taking. While the notion of play enlivens our daily activities, its power is in its purpose.

We play to do good because we care about and respect each other, our customers and the world we share. We play to create the highest quality products, services and experiences because our customers deserve no less. We play to build, for our customers and our company, market leadership and superior returns.

None of this is possible without our people, which is why we hire exceptional people and invest in their growth. Milliken has a culture of oneness, trust and continuous learning, enabling our associates to grow their personal capabilities and reach their full potential.
