Armstrong to Close California Plant After 82 Years of Operation

Lancaster, PA, December 21, 2020-Armstrong Flooring will close its flooring plant near Los Angeles, California in the first quarter, according to Lancaster Today. 

“The shutdown of the South Gate, California, plant is part of Armstrong’s effort to optimize the use of its tile-making facilities, the company said in a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The site makes vinyl tile flooring. 

“Armstrong said it will incur pre-tax charges of $6 million to $8 million for asset impairment and contract termination fees. It also anticipates spending less than $1 million on employee separation costs.”

The company, then named Armstrong Cork Co., established the plant in 1937.
