Armstrong World Industries, Inc.

Workers Exposed to Asbestos

This company was initially a wine bottle cork manufacturer when it was founded in the year 1860. After the 1890’s, the company started to expand its product line to insulating corkboard, fiberboard and linoleum flooring. By 2011, Armstrong World Industries became one of the largest manufacturers of hardwood flooring. For its insulation and vinyl flooring products, Armstrong used asbestos in manufacturing them, putting the company’s workers in danger of inhaling the mineral’s fibers, along with the people installing these.

With over 150 years of professional activity, Armstrong World Industries, Inc. enjoyed global success as a building products manufacturer throughout the last century and is still one of the leading companies in the industry nowadays. Between the 1930s and the 1970s, it employed large amounts of asbestos in the majority of their products, which included pipe insulation, vinyl floor tiles, mastic, as well as cement. Some of the brand names of the Armstrong World Industries, Inc. asbestos products are Armstrong Asphalt Tile, CC Navy Sealer, Accobest Gasketing Material, and Hydrocord Flooring Felt.
