Milliken’s growth strategy builds on our innovative history and focuses on impacting the world in the most positive way possible. One way we do that is by identifying and acquiring industry-leading organizations that share our purpose-driven values and commitment to excellence. These companies are then incorporated into the Milliken organization, complementing the strength and stability of our 150+ year legacy and global operations with their focused expertise and proven industry performance.

Distinct in their positioning, while still undeniably Milliken, our spectrum of brands delivers high-impact solutions to our commercial partners and to the people around the world who depend on them every day.
