Striving for Excellence


Striving for Excellence in 2022

Milliken touts five core values as a diversified global manufacturer innovating in the textile, chemical, floor covering, and healthcare industries. One of these guiding values is Excellence—it’s part of our legacy as well as our future.  We hold ourselves to a high standard of excellence, but it is also a welcomed reminder when others see excellence in us. We’re proud of the honors and designations we’ve received over the years, while ultimately staying true to what makes us unique as a company. 


Here are some of the ways Milliken is striving for Excellence in 2022:
