Armstrong to Produce FSC-Certified Flooring

Armstrong World Industries has announced that its Center, Texas, plant has received chain-of-custody certification from the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC). This certification is a requirement for selling FSC-certified products, and it ensures that a facility has procedures in place to track wood from certified forests and avoid confusing it with noncertified wood.

Armstrong’s Texas plant produces various hardwood flooring products, several of which will now be available in certified versions. The first order for certified wood, 150,000 ft2 (14,000 m2) of maple flooring, was shipped in July 2009.
