Armstrong Commercial Flooring Sweeps Top 250 Designer Survey
LANCASTER, PA– For the second year in a row, Armstrong Commercial Flooring swept all five resilient and hard surface categories – Service,
Quality, Design, Performance and Value – in Floor Focus magazine’s annual survey of the leading 250 design firms.
The Floor Focus survey is conducted each year to gain opinions on flooring surfaces and manufacturers in a number of categories, and to identify
trends that will shape the future of the market.
Of the five categories covered, Armstrong has won Quality for four consecutive years, Value for seven years, and Performance
for nine years straight. In Design, the company easily won the top spot from among more than a dozen hard surface manufacturers.
“We are honored to be voted number one in each category for two years in a row. We owe a special thank you to all of the architects
and designers surveyed, and for including Armstrong in so many wonderful projects,” said Marketing & Design Director Julia
BioBased Tile Receives “Green Kudos”
Designers also were asked to comment on green products that impress them, and this year Armstrong’s non-PVC BioBased Tile™ topped the list. According to Floor Focus, “Right now, Armstrong is the only major manufacturer to offer alternatives to vinyl composition tile.”
According to Floor Focus Publisher Kemp Harr, “It’s a fabulous accomplishment to receive the highest ratings from the top designers in the commercial
marketplace. Service, Quality, Design, Value, and Performance are all key. Also of great importance is confidence in the company
itself – reputation and brand strength count.”
