The distribution division of Georgia-Pacific Corporation began operations in 1954 with 13 warehouses utilized for the storage and distribution of Georgia-Pacific plywood. Over the next 50 years, the division quickly grew to the largest platform of building products distribution warehouses nationwide, offering a wide range of products. In May of 2004, Cerberus Capital Management, along with a team of senior leaders from the division, purchased the assets of the distribution division from Georgia-Pacific, forming the company you know today – BlueLinx. One year later, the proud new owners successfully led BlueLinx through an initial public offering to become a publicly traded company listed on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) under the symbol BXC. In January of 2014, BlueLinx hired Mitch Lewis as President and CEO to lead the organization moving forward. Since then, the company has continued to build out one of the most talented organizations in the industry.
