These values are exemplified in the products they manufacture, the way they conduct themselves, the partners they select, and the initiatives they carry out to support the flooring industry along with their humanitarian efforts.

They’ve also accumulated over 2,200 U.S. patents on their processes and products. Milliken also hold more than 5,000 patents, worldwide. Milliken was founded in 1865 by Seth Milliken & William Deering; the business was first named Deering Milliken Company and operated as a small woolen fabrics jobbing firm in Portland, Maine.
While we take pride in demonstrating excellence in everything we do, though, we find even deeper gratification in creating products that completely change the customer’s experience.
Just like we here at Australian Uniform Service focus on innovation and sustainability, Milliken Flooring Covering has invested a lot of time, money, and manpower into revolutionizing flooring technology. From a sustainability standpoint, Milliken products are scrutinized using Life Cycle Analysis against the ISO 14040 Environmental Management Standard. This standard helps ensure Milliken products meet the highest environmental conservation standards and reduces the impact their manufacturing processes have on our world. Milliken researchers are motivated by the core values to find, build, and create innovations that eliminate waste, increase product performance, preserve resources, and more. There is so much more!
