Armstrong began in 1860 as a small one-room company in Pennsylvania that sold corks. Each cork was branded with the Armstrong name, and eventually became the biggest cork supplier in the world by the end of the century. As technology progressed and people did not depend on corks as much, Armstrong progressed with people's needs and began cork board and brick. The years went by and Armstrong began to specialize in linoleum, then fiberboard, ceramic tile, laminate flooring, and then carpeting. Eventually, Armstrong became the leading brand for residential and business ceiling and flooring needs. With this history, customers know that the brand bring high quality products at affordable prices with a name that has been trusted for over 150 years. Armstrong offers products for residential ceiling, residential flooring, commercial ceiling and walls, and commercial flooring.
