LANCASTER, PA - Cabinetry and flooring manufacturer Armstrong World Industries, Inc. (NYSE: AWI) announced the sale of Patriot Flooring Supply, Inc. to The Belknap White Group, a 65-employee flooring distributor operating in New England and upstate New York.

"Armstrong's strategy is to focus on our core businesses – flooring and ceilings," said Frank Ready, CEO of Armstrong Flooring Products, in announcing the sale. "Patriot distributes hardwood and laminate flooring, and we're in the business of making and marketing floors. So this is a strategic decision that makes sense for all three parties – Armstrong, Patriot and The Belknap White Group."
