Milliken Research’s state-of-the-art facilities are located at the corporate headquarters of Milliken & Company in Spartanburg, SC, just north of Greenville in the region known locally as the "Upstate." 


Situated in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, the area includes ten counties of the commerce-rich I-85 corridor in the northwest corner of the state.  With a population of almost 1.4 million, the Upstate is the fastest-growing region in the state — and given its strategic position between Atlanta, Charlotte, and Asheville, future development and growth prospects are bright. 


A rich history of agriculture has given way to high-tech manufacturing, with large corporations — including Michelin, BMW, and General Electric — establishing regional, national, or continental headquarters in the area.  Greenville is the largest city in the region, with Spartanburg second, and the two serve as the base of most commercial activity in the region.


The Upstate’s famous “Southern hospitality” is accented by a vibrant cultural mix of ethnic and international flavors. The quality of life is unbeatable, with recreational and cultural opportunities abounding in the forms of symphony performances, festivals, baseball, soccer, theater, golfing, swimming, tennis, parks, historical sites and more. Education is a core value here, with both public and private schools in the area consistently receiving top honors in academics and the arts.  And for "big city" events or "mountain town" ambience, the easy drives to Atlanta, Charlotte, Columbia, and Asheville give Upstate residents the best of each world. 


The amenities and opportunities offered are surprising and wide-ranging, and affordable quality housing, education and healthcare are among the economic ingredients that make this area a great place to live.  Professionals from across the country and around the world have relocated here for business reasons — but they insist on staying for personal ones.  Life in the Upstate is unexpectedly — and richly — rewarding.
