AHF Products to Purchase Certain Armstrong Flooring Assets
AHF Products today announced that it has received bankruptcy court approval to purchase certain assets of Armstrong Flooring, Inc., strengthening AHF Products’ leadership position in resilient flooring solutions and adding a new gear to its growing business activity. The purchase includes the purchase and operation of three manufacturing facilities in the United States, in Lancaster and Beech Creek, Pennsylvania and Kankakee, Illinois.
“Our investments in new brands, products and capabilities, both organically and through acquisitions, have fueled our growth. Our strategic acquisitions have been a key driver in expanding our reach and product offering to provide our customers with industry-leading commercial and residential products, including hardwood, resilient wood and laminate. This is, and will continue to be, our strategy moving forward,” said Brian Carson, President and CEO, AHF Products. “Our ongoing commitment is to create products that bring more value to our customers, across all categories.”
Since its inception, AHF Products has grown rapidly in the residential and commercial flooring segments by innovating and expanding its product offerings, through its world-class brands, manufacturing capabilities and distribution channels.
“Our stable of leading brands allows us to provide our distribution partners with the right style, value, innovation and marketing to enable them to differentiate themselves and increase their market share. We will continue to be a leader and a one-stop-shop for our customers,” says Carson.
AHF Products continues to invest in manufacturing in the United States and this purchase expands AHF Products’ national footprint, improving the company’s customer base, production efficiency and logistics capabilities. Ten US facilities means sustaining US manufacturing jobs and boosting local economies. Additionally, the company’s domestic production capability provides protection against volatility in tariffs, duties and high shipping costs, allowing AHF Products to continue to provide superior customer service given the dislocation of the global supply chain.
AHF Products is well positioned to continue its remarkable growth trajectory through continued innovation and industry-leading customer service. Based in Mountville, Pennsylvania, AHF Products is a leader in hardwood, vinyl plank, laminate and commercial products. After acquiring Armstrong’s assets, the company will operate 11 manufacturing plants – seven woodworking plants and three vinyl plants in the United States, and one engineered hardwood plant in Cambodia. Three national distribution facilities serve customers through a multi-channel strategy that includes dealerships, home centers and distributors.
The purchase is expected to close in the third quarter of 2022 and is subject to customary closing conditions.
