Armstrong Flooring, Inc. (NYSE: AFI) on Thursday said it has entered into a definitive agreement to sell its Wood Flooring segment to an affiliate of American Industrial Partners (“AIP”) for a purchase price of $100 million.

As of October 31, 2018 Armstrong Flooring’s Wood Flooring segment comprised six U.S. manufacturing facilities primarily serving the North American region and approximately 1,700 employees. The transaction, which is subject to customary closing conditions, is expected to be completed at the end of the fourth quarter of 2018.

Upon closing of the sale, Armstrong Flooring will intensify its focus on the fastest-growing parts of the flooring industry, including Luxury Vinyl Tile (“LVT”) and rigid core, as well as its wide range of resilient products including Vinyl Composition Tile and resilient sheet.

AIP will get Armstrong Flooring’s high-quality wood flooring product portfolio and existing network of wood floor manufacturing facilities, staffed by an experienced wood flooring team. AIP will own the Bruce brand and all other Wood Flooring segment brands. To ensure a seamless transition for our customers, AIP will have full access to the Armstrong Flooring brand for the sale of wood products for two years after closing.
