At home, at work, in healthcare facilities, classrooms, stores, or restaurants, Armstrong World Industries offers interior solutions that help to enhance comfort, save time, improve building efficiency and overall performance, and create beautiful spaces. For more than 150 years, we have built our business on trust and integrity. It set us apart then, and it sets us apart now, along with our ability to collaborate with and innovate for the people we’re here to serve – our customers, our shareholders, our communities and our employees. Through the years, our penchant for collaboration and innovation has led us to develop ceiling solutions that work harder than many people realize. It’s easy to see how our ceilings finish a room beautifully, adding drama, character and dynamism to any space. But did you know our ceilings have acoustical properties and that means they can help control sound and noise within a room and room to room? They can, and the implications are life-changing. In schools, for example, our acoustical ceilings can help teachers teach and kids learn. Statistics show many children only hear three out of every four words a teacher says – because of ambient noise. In rooms with our acoustical ceilings, children can hear better, so they learn better and faster. In hospitals with our acoustical ceilings, a quieter environment helps patients heal faster. And these are just a few things our ceilings can do. We have ceiling solutions that address fire and seismic concerns as well. We are committed to developing new and sustainable ceiling solutions, with design and performance possibilities that empower our customers to create beautiful, high-performance residential and commercial buildings. It’s an exciting, rewarding business to be in, and we’re committed to continuing to grow and prosper for the benefit of all of our stakeholders.
