From a cork-cutting shop to global leader in ceiling system solutionsOur history

  • 1860

    “Let the buyer have faith” – Thomas Morton Armstrong opens a tiny two-man cork-cutting shop in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania delivering his first hand-carved corks by wheelbarrow.

  • 1864

    Thomas Morton pioneers the practice of stamping each cork with the ‘Armstrong’ brand name and includes a written guarantee in every bag sold. Within three decades, Armstrong becomes the world’s largest cork company.

  • 1900

    Armstrong adapts to changing market conditions and builds a new factory in Pennsylvania, to produce linoleum. Other products follow including fibreboard, ceiling board and vinyl floors, and later furniture and ceramic tiles.

  • 1966

    For the first time, a manufacturing plant opens in Europe (United Kingdom). Thirty years later, in 1996, Armstrong opens its factory doors in Asia.

  • 2000

    With the acquisition of the Gema metal group of companies, Armstrong offers custom solutions in metal. In the following years Armstrong introduces wood, mesh and floating ceiling systems to enrich its multi-material portfolio.

  • Today

    Armstrong Ceiling Solutions is acquired by Knauf, providing the business with an opportunity to strengthen its presence even further to expand its ceiling solution portfolio for EMEA & APAC customers.
