I have lived in Upstate SC my entire life….and always known about Milliken and Company, but NEVER had any idea of how many products they are involved with. For example, that clear plastic bottle you drink water from….Milliken’s research team developed the chemical reaction that allows the plastic to be clear. The Innovation Gallery does an amazing job of telling their story.
From their website:

Every day, our community of innovators is invigorated by the challenge of finding creative ways to enhance people’s lives and make the world around us easier, safer, more sustainable and more beautiful.
