Milliken's Textile Business intends to remove all PFAS-containing compounds from its portfolio by the end of this year.

Chad McAllister, executive vice president, Milliken & Company, and president, Milliken’s Textile Business, said that their pledge to their customers is to engineer the highest-quality protection and performance textiles, and their objective is to positively impact the planet for generations.
