Alongside their use in office interiors, Armstrong’s acoustical products have been installed to great effect in schools where they have proved to be highly successful in helping to create a quieter environment, essential for improving learning and encouraging communication.
Armstrong manufacture a range of products which are designed to not only control ambient noise, but to also provide fire safety and seismic solutions. A scientific and technological focus has led to the company’s position as market leaders in their field. Whilst the beautiful designs of Armstrong’s installations speak for themselves, they also offer considerable benefits which are the product of a commitment to innovation and which can make a significant contribution to the design of a stylish yet user-friendly office environment.
‘Let the Buyer have Faith’
A story perhaps best represents the attitude that Armstrong have towards their reputation and the trust of their customers comes from the very early days of the company’s history, when Armstrong was a cork cutting shop in Pittsburgh. When some soft drinks which had been stopped by Armstrong’s corks went bad, Thomas Armstrong reimbursed the customer, despite the corks having little to do with the condition of the drinks.
Putting quality and customer service first are still a focus of the company today and goes a long way to explain the status which the business has earned internationally. ‘Let the buyer have faith’ was one of Thomas Armstrong’s sayings and the trust of customers is still prized today.
The Company can also ensure their commitment to sustainability, with Armstrong’s ‘GreenPrint’ outlining their plan for a sustainable future; from the materials used to the manufacturing technique and provisions for end of life recycling. The company’s Millwood facility, a 30,000 square foot manufacturing plant in West Virginia, is now a zero waste production site, eliminating over 11,500 tons of scrap metal in the first year. The plant produces the mineral fibre used in acoustic ceiling tiles and this approach to minimising the impact of their production is representative of Armstrong’s commitment.
