Our parent company, Miller Waste Mills, was founded on the concept of recycling in 1923. The company began recycling discarded fabric by processing it into fibers called “waste”, which was dipped in oil and used for lubricating railcar wheels during the golden age of rail travel.
Today, Miller Waste Mills processes post-industrial and post-consumer fiber and textile waste into reclaimed fiber products that can be re-created into fabric, insulation, stuffing, or filtration media for various consumer, industrial, and automotive applications. Throughout the process, Miller Waste Mills helps divert thousands of pounds of textiles from landfills each year, reclaiming the original fibers that can be reused instead of being thrown away.
This commitment to eco-friendly processes has carried over to RTP Company, as well, which was established under the Miller Waste Mills umbrella in 1982. RTP Company is committed to building on the initiatives started by Miller Waste Mills nearly 100 years ago by developing sustainable material solutions for OEMs and molders around the world.
