Armstrong Begins Construction of LVT Facility

Lancaster, PA, April 14, 2014 -- Armstrong has begun construction of its LVT manufacturing facility in Lancaster.

The $41 million investment, which will result in moving LVT production from China, is 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.
The LVT market is experiencing double-digit growth in North America, largely because of product performance, appearance and ease-of-installation.

By on-shoring LVT manufacturing from China, Armstrong said it expects to have more competitive prices with shorter lead times and improved customer service.

The company expects to start shipping LVT product from the plant by mid 2015.
