Working closely with the specifiers, Armstrong Flooring developed custom Accolade, Infinity and Wallflex products designed to beautifully complement the interiors of this state of the art Health Care facility. A majority of the over 100,000m2 of Armstrong products installed at RCH were manufactured by Armstrong in Melbourne. Over 20,000kg of construction PVC off cuts that would previously have been sent to landfill were collected for recycling back into flooring at Armstrong’s Braeside Victoria facility.

Environmental Responsibility

Armstrong Flooring is one of the largest producers of resilient flooring in the world and the only Australian manufacturer of resilient PVC sheet and tile products. We are committed to improving the lives of the 200 plus people who work in our business and the millions who walk on our products every day.

We embarked on our environmental focus in 2003, one key success is in the clear link that if it ’ s good for the environment, it’s good for business. Our integrated approach is delivering results, reducing our use of imports and providing the motivation to further improve our environmental performance and leverage even more growth. With numerous awards and a two - fold increase in sales - including over 30% exported - we have made significant progress, but acknowledge that we still have much to do. Our Agenda

  • Build further on recycling post consumer waste streams
  • Cut water usage by 30%
  • Cut emissions by 40%
  • Be neutral to land fill
  • Recycle flooring at the end of its useful life
