The Armstrong Cork Company (formerly of Armstrong World Industries) was a cork manufacturer located at 2349 Railroad Street in the Strip District neighborhood of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The company's building was built circa 1901, and designed by architect Frederick J. Osterling. The building was added to the National Register of Historic Places on May 10, 2005, and to the List of Pittsburgh History and Landmarks Foundation Historic Landmarks in 2007.

Today, the building is maintained as loft apartments (since May 2007), and is called "The Cork Factory " (also known as the "Cork Factory Lofts", and "The Cork Factory - loft apartments on the river").

Armstrong Cork Company eventually moved its headquarters to Lancaster, Pennsylvania. The company's product lines evolved from cork products and Linoleum, to vinyl floors and acoustical ceiling products.
