Milliken & Company has been in business for over 150 years and employs more than 7,000 associates who work to deliver innovations that do good for the world, create new experiences, and build for the future. By combining science with design and insights, Milliken tackles the issues and concerns of today.
Milliken not only values innovation, but they value employees and their health and wellness. Their headquarters in South Carolina invested in an on-site fitness facility a number of years ago. They recognize that amenities are important in building and sustaining a successful business, and a corporate fitness facility would increase productivity and morale while providing a recruitment and retention tool.
In a recent corporate survey, Milliken discovered that employees value the amenities they currently offer, but it was time to make a few changes. The original fitness center was outdated and a plan to refresh the equipment and update the corporate fitness center was created and approved.
Precor authorized representative, Justin Webb, with Advantage Sport and Fitness, worked with the Milliken team to develop a solution that would transform their fitness space. Not only did they purchase all new fitness equipment, but Milliken had the locker rooms renovated, they invested in blue tooth surround sound and had new carpet installed throughout the facility.
The decision makers at Milliken respected the Precor reputation and were impressed with the quality and durability of the equipment. This led to the decision to install Precor Experience™ Series cardio equipment with personal viewing screens (PVS), Precor Vitality™ Series strength, Icarian® Series strength, and the new Discovery™ Series Smith Machine into their corporate fitness facility.
The employees at Milliken & Company are thrilled with the Precor equipment and the new look and feel of the corporate fitness center. The facility usage has increased substantially and the employees recognize that Milliken is serious about their health and well-being. In addition, the center is being used as a recruiting tool to emphasize Milliken’s overall mission and demonstrate to potential candidates that the company is willing to invest in their employees and their success.
