Backed by over 150 years of successful operations, Armstrong Ceilings is a global leader in providing acoustic, design and environmental ceiling system solutions for interior environments.

To date, worldwide, the company has recycled over 11.5 million m² of old ceiling material - that’s more than 40,000 tonnes of construction waste that’s been diverted from landfill.

In January 2013, Armstrong pledged to recycle non-Armstrong ceiling tiles, enabling contractors in the UK to make even more substantial savings on waste disposal costs.
