Early on, the company began to find new uses for cork and let one product lead logically to another. Corkboard led to fiberboard, fiberboard led to ceiling board, cork tile and linoleum insulating corkboard and brick, and then linoleum floors. A new factory rose from a cornfield on the edge of Lancaster, Pennsylvania, and in 1909, a year after Thomas Armstrong died, the company started making and selling linoleum, the first in a robust flooring product portfolio to come. The Armstrong formula for success became clear – stick to your core business and your core values but adapt to changing conditions as the market and your customer demand – a philosophy that’s alive and well in the company today. Armstrong is a leader in the design and manufacture of floors and ceilings. Our innovative residential and commercial product designs, solutions, and services enable our customers to deliver the exceptional interior spaces they envision for themselves and their clients. In 2014, Armstrong's consolidated net sales from continuing operations totaled approximately $2.5 billion.
