Toledo's Owens Corning said yesterday it formed a marketing alliance with Armstrong World Industries, Inc., that will bolster OC's presence in the acoustic building-products market.
Under the agreement, OC's acoustic systems business will be responsible for product-line strategy, sales, and service for Armstrong's Soundsoak wall products. OC, which makes building products, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection last month. It had 1999 revenue of $5 billion. Armstrong, based in Lancaster, Pa., makes floor and ceiling materials and had revenue of $3.44 billion last year.
