BlueLinx Holdings, a wholesale distributor of building products, and Louisiana-Pacific Corporation (LP Building Solutions), a manufacturer of engineered wood building products, expanded their existing distribution partnership.

The expanded collaboration will include LP SmartSide Trim & Siding and LP SmartSide ExpertFinish Trim & Siding in the Southeast region, specifically Jacksonville, Fla., Tampa, Fla., and Lakeland, Fla. The strategic move expands BlueLinx’s stocking footprint of LP SmartSide to 11 locations spanning three of LP’s regions in the United States.

“We are excited about the continued growth between LP and BlueLinx. The goals of our companies align with offering best-in-class specialty products to the single-family, multifamily, and light commercial building segments,” senior vice president of product management of BlueLinx Mike Wilson said in a prepared statement. “LP SmartSide is the fastest-growing siding brand in the U.S. today due to its value proposition, which includes a top-quality product that installs faster with higher yield than other alternatives.”

Chad Wold, general sales manager for LP in the Southeast, said the expansion in Jacksonville, Tampa, and Lakeland will provide LP customers with additional options and help the company’s ability to sustain growth and success.

Marietta, Ga.-based BlueLinx distributes across 50 states to approximately 15,000 customers, including national home centers, pro dealers, cooperatives, specialty distributors, regional and local dealers, and industrial manufacturers. Nashville, Tenn.-based LP Building Solutions manufactures engineered wood building products for builders, remodelers, and homeowners.
