Lancaster, PA, April 4, 2018-Armstrong Flooring named Linron, the nation’s leading national account distributor for retail chain stores, as the 2017 Flooring Recycler of the Year.
In 2017, Linron successfully recycled over 23 million pounds of vinyl tile through the Armstrong Flooring On&On Floor Recycling Program. The award was presented at the 2018 GlobalShop tradeshow.
The Armstrong Flooring award recognizes organizations that make significant environmental contributions by recycling resilient flooring materials during renovation projects, resulting in reduction in landfill materials, transportation and energy.
As the nation's leading national accounts distributor for retail chain stores, Linron Company has provided floor covering for over 18,000 retail stores covering 2.2 billion square feet. Linron began recycling vinyl flooring removed during the renovation of retail stores nationwide in 2014 through the Armstrong Flooring On&On Floor Recycling Program and to date has recycled over 50 million pounds of post-consumer material-a quantity equal to the weight of 111 Statues of Liberty or enough to tile a square foot path from New York to Tokyo.
