Armstrong World Industries, Inc. - South Gate Plant produces both commercial and residential vinyl composition tile (VCT). The plant has been producing tile at its present location since 1938. Throughout the years Armstrong continually improve its processes to be more efficient, safe and environmentally sound. In 2010, the plant was able to reduce waste generation by 2,248 tons (4.5 million pounds) with a cost savings of $632,000. This was done through improvement projects using Lean systems methodologies, creating a Sustainability Team to focus on the 3Rs, and with input and support from all plant employees. Through continued support and guidance from Armstrong corporate environmental groups we are committed and will continue to focus on sustainability including re-using, recycling and minimizing the generation of waste. In 2011, Lean Manufacturing techniques are expected to result in further waste reductions.
