Armstrong increases ceilings output with Pontarlier production line

  • 11 May 2017

A £20 million production line capable of turning out tens of thousands of ceiling tiles per day has been unveiled by Armstrong World Industries in Pontarlier, France.

The lamination production line increases Armstrong Ceiling’s manufacturing capacity, in turn providing more output flexibility for all of it’s European markets. The investment means it can offer shorter lead times on delivering its products throughout southern Europe.

Armstrong has marked the development with new, minimalistic and easily identifiable packaging. In order to accommodate the new production line, Armstrong’s plant is expanding to more than 36,000m² of enclosed area.

The new line guarantees an improved visual and premium finish through the use of a fully-automatic laminator. It also ensures the optimal acoustic performance for each product, and opens up multiple future development possibilities in terms of performance, dimensions and aesthetics.

Victor D Grizzle, CEO of Armstrong World Industries, said: “This is an exciting time for us in Europe and I thank the local community and all of our employees and partners for their dedication and support of this project.

Providing our plant with new production capacity will allow us to strengthen our position in Europe by relying on our manufacturing expertise and optimizing our strong position in terms of price, quality and service.”

The new lamination production line reflects Armstrong’s commitment to sustainability with:

  • 5,000 tonnes of waste and raw materials recycled in-house per year,
  • 1,500 tonnes of paper recycled per year,
  • Off-cut ceiling waste or rejected panels withdrawn from production by the quality team automatically reprocessed,
  • Leftover paint 100% recycled,
  • Used water routed through an in-house recycling and treatment process.

The production line is the latest investment that supports Armstrong’s aim in providing a better customer experience by offering best-in-class quality, flexibility and new products and services, all over Europe.
