UNDERSTANDING DESIGN FOR GOOD

Milliken is our parent company and is driven by three core values:

ETHICS

Beyond Ethics to Doing Good

While we hold ourselves accountable to the highest ethical standards, we derive our greatest satisfaction from creating innovations that help solve the world's problems, adding value to people's lives, improving health and safety, and making this world sustainable.

EXELLENCE

Beyond Excellence to Creating New Experiences

We create the highest quality products and services because our customers deserve no less. While we take pride in demonstrating excellence in everything we do, we find even deeper gratification in creating products that completely change the customer's experience.

LEADERSHIP

Beyond Leadership to Building for the Future

Following our founders' long-term view, we recognise that for our customers and our company to be economically sustainable, our innovations must enable us both to win in the market and to reinvest for the future.

From this commitment to our core values, the 'Doing Good' concept was developed and evolved to 'Design for Good' in the Australia and New Zealand markets.

It's Beyond Ethics

It's Having a Positive & Healthy Impact with What We Do

It's Forging a Culture

It's Offering Customers More Than Just a Product

DOING GOOD IN OUR COMPANY

Milliken-Ontera's culture is supported by the Milliken culture... Doing Good!

Doing good transcends into multiple areas of our business. It’s about doing good for our staff, our customers, the communities we live in. It’s about ensuring the products we produce can do good for their final purpose.

This is where Design for Good concept became reality. It was developed and embedded into the Milliken-Ontera culture to ensure we provide the best possible outcome for our customers and the occupants of the spaces we are providing carpet flooring for.

DOING GOOD IN OUR PRODUCTS

Design With Purpose

It is one thing to create and market carpet, yet it’s another thing to truly understand and provide a positive impact, with environmental and sustainable benefits, in what we design and the purpose it serves.

At Milliken-Ontera, we have a holistic approach in designing our products. The more we understand the environment that we are designing for, the better we can apply the “Design for Good” concept and deliver on our clients’ needs and expectations.

Milliken-Ontera WellBACTM range of carpet tile backing systems is a pro-active example of how we are evolving and designing with a conscious mind to health and wellness and our surrounding environments.

We are also committed to the environment and sustainability - ensuring our product ingredients are harmless to the environment and our manufacturing staff. Our products are PVC free and we are transparent with our material ingredients.

Being part of the Milliken family, we are privy to environmental and health associations and one of those is the Well Living Lab. Milliken is an International founding member for the Well Living Lab, where Milliken-Ontera is closely engaged with them to research how we can improve health and wellness through our products.
