Armstrong announced that it will initiate a 3-10% increase in the United States and Canada on select solid hardwood products – mostly wider width and non oak species – and on select engineered hardwood products effective with shipments on September 13, 2013.  

“We continue to see increases on both veneer and lumber costs, especially on certain species of lumber,” said Kevin Biedermann, senior vice president, Armstrong Residential Floor Products.  “We continue to do everything we can to compensate.  We truly understand how difficult it is to pass along price increases.  Our focus continues to be delivering quality, innovation, and service that drive growth for our customers.”
