Milliken & Company

Global manufacturer Milliken & Company announced that it was named to the America’s Most Innovative Companies list, an annual honor published by Fortune and Statista Inc., which recognizes U.S. organizations at the forefront of innovation.

This is Milliken’s second year receiving the award, and it is one of 200 companies included among the 2024 honorees.

“At Milliken, we come to work each day ready to roll up our sleeves and take on big challenges,” says Halsey Cook, president and CEO of Milliken & Company. “We use our materials science expertise to solve everyday problems that make a lasting positive impact across several industries and countless product applications.”

Statista Inc. teamed up with Fortune to establish a methodology that accounts for a holistic view of corporate innovation across three equally rated categories – product innovation, process innovation and innovation culture. Milliken is one of 12 industrial companies on the 2024 list.

Milliken manufactures thousands of products across textile, specialty chemical, flooring and health care applications – and has accumulated more than 2,500 patents in the U.S. and more than 5,500 patents globally since 1927.

“Milliken associates develop everything from new molecules to new products that make people’s lives better,” says Allen Jacoby, senior vice president of innovation and chief strategy officer of Milliken & Company. “From protecting first responders and helping wounds heal faster to safeguarding our food and making environments healthier, we’re proud to be the science behind these innovations and so much more.”
