AHF Products announced that it has received bankruptcy court approval to purchase certain assets of Armstrong Flooring, Inc., strengthening AHF Products’ leadership position in resilient flooring solutions and adding another gear to its expanding commercial market business. The purchase includes the purchase and operation of three U.S. manufacturing facilities, in Lancaster and Beech Creek, PA and in Kankakee, IL.
“Our investments in new brands, products and capabilities, both organically and through acquisitions, has fueled our growth. Our strategic acquisitions have been a key driver in expanding both our reach and product offering to provide our customers with industry-leading commercial and residential products, including hardwood, resilient and laminate. That is, and will continue to be, our strategy moving forward,” said Brian Carson, President and CEO, AHF Products. “Our ongoing commitment is to create products that bring more value to our customers, across categories.”
Since its inception, AHF Products has grown rapidly in both the residential and commercial flooring segments by innovating and broadening its product offerings, through its world class brands, manufacturing capabilities and channels of distribution.
“Our stable of top brands allows us to bring our channel partners the right style, value, innovation and marketing to enable them to differentiate themselves and grow market share. We will continue to be a leader and a one-stop-shop for our customers,” said Carson.
AHF Products continues to invest in U.S. manufacturing and this purchase expands AHF Products’ domestic footprint, enhancing the company’s customer base, production efficiencies and logistical capabilities. Ten U.S. facilities mean sustaining American manufacturing jobs and boosting local economies. Further, the company’s domestic production capacity provides insulation from volatility around tariffs, duties and high shipping costs, which positions AHF Products to continue providing superior customer service given the dislocated global supply chain.
After acquiring the Armstrong assets, the company will operate 11 manufacturing facilities – seven wood plants and three vinyl facilities in the U.S., and one engineered hardwood plant in Cambodia. Three domestic distribution facilities serve customers through a multi-channel strategy that includes dealers, home centers and distributors.
The purchase is expected to be finalized in the third quarter of 2022 and is subject to customary closing conditions
