Lancaster, PA, Sept. 5, 2012 -– Armstrong World Industries has sold distributor Patriot Flooring Supply to the Belknap White Group, a 35-year old flooring distributor operating in New England and upstate New York.
The transaction closed on Sept. 1.
Patriot, a flooring sales and distribution business that employs 65 people in Wilmington, Mass. and Pompton Plains, N.J. serves the New England, metropolitan New York and Northern New Jersey markets.
Frank Ready, CEO of Armstrong Flooring Products, said, “Armstrong’s strategy is to focus on our core businesses – flooring and ceilings. Patriot distributes hardwood and laminate flooring, and we’re in the business of making and marketing floors. So this is a strategic decision that makes sense for all three parties.”
