In its 150 years of doing business, Armstrong has a history of innovation and wise use of resources. Its flooring business began by recycling cork waste to make linoleum flooring for homes and commercial buildings. One hundred years later, the company is still making linoleum with 100% natural ingredients, and now markets the most extensive portfolio of residential floor products available – genuine hardwood, laminate, linoleum, vinyl sheet and tile.
Sustainability and the Environment
Armstrong recognizes the importance of protecting the environment and using resources responsibly. We are committed to good environmental stewardship in our dealings with customers, employees, the government and our community. As the world’s largest hardwood flooring company, Armstrong has a vested interest in protecting the forests where the raw materials originate. Our commitment to sustainability requires that we protect the communities where we extract, process and manufacture our wood products.
Trees are a renewable resource that can be sustained with proper forest management. In fact, over the last 60 years the number of hardwood trees in the U.S. has more than doubled. That means we all have to continue to be stewards of the world’s forests by carefully managing them.
VISION House in INNOVENTIONS Products
Hardwood is a big part of the discussion for homeowners who want to live a green lifestyle and play a part in preserving the world's natural resources. Wood floors are not only beautiful; they are extremely hard-wearing and long-lasting. Armstrong offers both solid hardwood – 100% hardwood milled from lumber -- and engineered wood flooring, built up of layers of wood. All Armstrong hardwood flooring comes pre-finished for a no fuss, no muss installation. There's no dust from sanding, no fumes from chemicals, no waiting for the finish to dry. Hardsurface flooring also is durable and easily cleanable. This makes it a good choice for people sensitive to allergens and dust.
