Let the buyer have faith: why our values count

There’s a true story about our founder Thomas Armstrong in the very early days of our company. Tom had supplied corks to a customer who provided a special soft drink for a street festival in Pittsburgh. The soft drinks went bad, and Tom’s customer blamed Armstrong’s corks.

Tom replaced all of the soft drink – even though the drinks going sour likely had little to do with the corks. That decision cost a pretty penny for a new business in the late 1800s, but he did it to preserve his reputation, stand behind his product and make his name synonymous with trust. The news spread all over Pittsburgh and people learned if the supplier was Armstrong, the buyer could have faith.

Tom Armstrong adopted that motto, “let the buyer have faith,” and put his name on every bag of corks along with a written guarantee of quality in each bag.

Our company and our brand are more than 150 years old. We believe one of the reasons we have stood the test of time is our devotion to our operating principles and our commitment to acting responsibly and with integrity everywhere we work.

We are about resiliency, agility and a passion for customers!
