BEVERLY, W.Va. — Armstrong Flooring officials and community leaders gathered Monday morning for a groundbreaking ceremony for the upcoming expansion to the Beverly facility.
Sen. Shelley Moore-Capito, R-W.Va., said the expansion project holds a special place for her as her father was governor when the company originally opened in Beverly.
“It’s great to be back in Randolph County and it’s great to be back here at Armstrong. As you all know, it’s close to my heart because of the origins of this factory back in the ’80s was part of some of my dad’s legacy when he was here in the ’80s as governor. I don’t think he got to do the final ribbon-cutting so I make sure I don’t miss one dag-gone ribbon cutting when it comes to this place,” Capito said.
