BlueLinx Agrees To End Supply Agreement With Georgia-Pacific
April 26, 2009
BlueLinx Holdings Inc., Atlanta, GA, a distributor of building products in North America, has agreed to terminate the Master Purchase, Supply and Distribution Agreement between BlueLinx Corp. and Georgia-Pacific LLC, effective April 27, 2009. Georgia-Pacific previously announced its intention to end the agreement in May 2010.
In exchange for BlueLinx's agreement to cancel the agreement earlier, Georgia-Pacific will pay $18.8 million.
BlueLinx will continue to distribute Georgia-Pacific building products, but the early termination of the agreement also provides BlueLinx the opportunity to pursue strategic relationships with other suppliers and customers previously prohibited.
