Armstrong To Build LVT Plant in Pennsylvania

Lancaster, PA, Oct. 18, 2013 -- Armstrong World Industries will build its $41 million luxury vinyl tile plant in Lancaster, 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.
