BlueLinx, LP Further Expand Distribution Partnership

It extends BlueLinx' LP distribution footprint in the northwest U.S. and Mississippi gulf regions.

Building products distributor BlueLinx Holdings announced Nov. 14 that it has expanded its distribution partnership with engineered wood building products manufacturer Louisiana-Pacific Corporation (LP).

The extended collaboration will include LP’s SmartSide Trim & Siding and LP SmartSide ExpertFinish Trim & Siding, in BlueLinx’s Seattle and Spokane, Washington branches. Both product lines will be sold throughout the entire distribution footprint at those two locations, which includes Hawaii and Alaska.

Additionally, BlueLinx will now carry LP’s SmartSide Trim & Siding through its Gulfport, Mississippi location.

This expansion brings BlueLinx’s stocking footprint of LP SmartSide to 14 locations, spanning four of LP’s regions across the U.S.

“We are excited to add these brands to our specialty portfolio in the West, as well as Gulfport. LP SmartSide continues to be a leading siding brand in the U.S. today due to its value proposition, which includes a pre-finished product that installs faster with higher yield than other alternatives,” said Mike Wilson, BlueLinx Chief Product Management Officer. “This strategic partnership aligns with our commitment to offer best-in-class specialty products to our customers, builders, and contractors.”

BlueLinx was No. 10 on MDM’s 2023 Top Building Materials/Construction Distributors List.
