TRADE ASSOCIATIONS

Armstrong’s clients can be assured of our commitment and dedication to providing them with the highest quality service and products only by taking a look at the trade associations in which Armstrong is a member in good standing.  

Membership in trade associations is vital for any organization as they help it keep up-to-date with the best industry-wide practices and resources.  The trade associations Armstrong belongs to organize seminars and workshops in order to educate their members about upcoming developments thus providing members with a head start on applying and adhering to new standards when they are changed.  What’s more, trade associations can act as  watchdogs for the well-being of their industries and the general public. Customers of organizations belonging to trade associations can be assured that their contractors are following prescribed industry standards. Of course, customers can also approach an association to file a possible grievance if they feel their contractors have not provided them with appropriate services or products.
