Armstrong Flooring Announces Price Increase
Lancaster, PA, December 8, 2016—Armstrong Flooring is implementing a price increase on commercial sheet, linoleum, commercial tile, and wall base and installation and maintenance products.
Over the past several months, the company has experienced significant increases in raw materials, energy, transportation and operating costs.
Key raw materials, such as lumber, PVC, plasticizer, limestone, TiO2, and packaging have not only increased but are expected to continue upward cost pressure throughout 2017.
Rising natural gas and electricity prices are increasing our manufacturing facility operating costs. Fuel and transportation rates are rising both domestically and abroad, impacting delivered cost.
In spite of every effort, the company can no longer fully absorb the extent of these increases. As a result, Armstrong Flooring will be increasing prices for the following commercial product lines effective February 15, 2017:
Commercial Sheet by 3-6%
Linoleum by 3-6%
Commercial Tile by 3-6%
Wall base and Installation and Maintenance products by 3-6%
Commercial LVT will not be impacted by this price increase implementation.
This price increase will apply to orders shipping on or after February 15, 2017. Special Job Quotes (SJQ’s) expiring on or before February 15th 2017 will not be affected by this increase. Orders accepted prior to February 15th, under the Contract Basis of Sale, B and Competitive Tile Procedure price lists, will be protected at that price level for 30 days beyond the effective date of the price increase.
