Armstrong to build LVT plant in Pennsylvania

Home News Armstrong to build LVT plant in Pennsylvania

Lancaster, Pa.—Armstrong World Industries will build its $41 million luxury vinyl tile plant here, where the company has its headquarters. 
It will be the company`s second investment in the Lancaster operation since 2008, when it added fiberglass-backed sheet vinyl manufacturing to that plant`s production portfolio.

Armstrong Flooring CEO, Frank Ready said, “By bringing this manufacturing to the U.S., we leverage our manufacturing expertise and create a strong cost, quality and service position for a very exciting product category.”

By moving its LVT manufacturing from China, Armstrong expects to realize a more competitive cost structure with shorter lead times and improved customer service. 
Construction is scheduled to start the first quarter of 2014, with projected completion in early 2015.
