In 1992, MILEX Corporation developed and patented an exciting new biodegradable product for the packaging industry that replaced industry standard polystyrene packing peanuts. These new "packing peanuts" were made from naturally grown, milled agricultural Sorghum seeds (or "Milo") that were grown on the high plains, using state of the art equipment. This incredible new product became known worldwide as Milex™.
During the mid 1990's, the demand for environmentally friendly products was becoming extremely popular. As the word spread throughout the packing industry about Milex™, the company experienced tremendous global growth. And, in 2010, the exclusive rights to produce Milex™ was purchased and eventually sold to the largest packaging material manufacturer in the world.
Currently, Milex™ continues to be used as the leading "green" packing material used globally by many major corporations when shipping their packages. In fact, if you've received a package containing packing peanuts within the past 20 years, chances are you've already seen Milex™!
Sorghum seeds, commonly referred to as "Berries".
MILO INSULATION EVOLUTION
It was during our years manufacturing Milex™, we discovered through our customers our packing peanuts did an exceptional job at insulating hot or cold items during shipping. This discovery prompted our research and development team to begin looking into the home insulation industry and what we found out was eye opening. Not only were there no truly "green" insulation choices available to homeowners, but our product outperformed the insulation levels of both fiberglass and cellulose blow-in attic insulators in nearly every category.
After the production rights for Milex™ were sold in 2010, one-hundred percent of our attention turned to developing the world's first completely biodegradable, toxin-free home insulation that would impact consumers and our world in a positive way. Subsequently, after several years of research and development, MILO Insulation was formed in 2013 and the world was introduced to MILEX 2.0™. The safest and very best home insulation available anywhere in the world!
Today, MILO Insulation offers our incredible home insulation products to homeowners, general contractors and home builders of any size through our worldwide headquarters in Tulia, Texas, as well as a network of dedicated dealers across the country.
