LANCASTER, Pa. -- Armstrong(R) Cabinet Products, a division of Armstrong World Industries, Inc., is a Preferred Vendor for 84 Lumber, the nation's leading privately held building materials and services supplier to professional contractors and build-it-yourselfers.

84 Lumber owns and operates more than 280 stores, component plants, door shops, installation centers and engineered wood product shops in 31 states. With more than 3,300 associates 84 Lumber provides industry leading one-on-one service to every customer, ensuring an efficient and satisfying purchasing experience.

"Since 1956, we've been dedicated to supplying our customers with the best quality building products and a highly-trained, knowledgeable and motivated team of professional associates. This focus guides our business today and drives us to identify key partners such as Armstrong Cabinets who share this vision," said Thomas Kutchko, Lead Purchasing Manager, 84 Lumber.

"Through a centralized purchasing system at 84 Lumber's Team Headquarters, customers can take advantage of the company's national buying power, which saves them money and adds more to their bottom line," said Kutchko. Through established relationships with national building material vendors such as Armstrong Cabinets, both professional contractors and build-it-yourselfers can rely on 84 Lumber to have the products and quantities that they need -- when they need it."

"Armstrong enjoys a great partnership with 84 Lumber. Their commitment to delivering the quality of products and services that professional customers value, blends well with the Armstrong brand's great products and services," said Michael A. Glaser, CKD, Director, National Accounts, Armstrong Cabinet Products.

"While heavily focused on the professional contractor, all 84 Lumber locations are open to the public," added Kutchko. "We are refitting some of our locations to be more consumer-friendly. These brighter, fresher showrooms will present more vignettes, some with full-blown kitchen vignettes that will feature Armstrong Cabinet products."

According to Kutchko, having a cabinet brand with the power and heritage of Armstrong is a value to 84 Lumber. "Their service is number one, as is the brand's quality and pricing. People know Armstrong. This builds customer confidence, and helps us provide contractors with turnkey installation and on site management services, while offering the highest quality lumber and building materials."

"The Armstrong name is synonymous in the homeowner's mind with quality, trust, value and dependability. There are very few brands that can offer years of experience and quality; Armstrong, in business for 150 years, is one of the most highly recognized brands in building materials," said Glaser.

Armstrong products will be available in all 84 Lumber locations, and each store's inventory will be tailored to the demands of that region.

Armstrong Cabinets manufactures kitchen and bath cabinetry through its showrooms and distribution centers nationwide. Armstrong offers stylish products built with enduring value, and backed by the 150 year heritage of the Armstrong brand.
