Boral Expands In Midwest With BlueLinx
Boral’s efforts to expand the availability of Boral TruExterior trim and siding products have led to the additions of two BlueLinx locations. As one of the nation’s leading distributors of building products, BlueLinx will now make it possible for Boral to better serve its customer base in Northern Illinois, Wisconsin and Iowa through the addition of the University Park, Ill., and Des Moines, Iowa, distribution centers.
Earlier this year, BlueLinx began distributing Boral TruExterior siding and trim throughout the Upper Midwest, servicing locations in Wisconsin westward to the Dakotas with the company’s Maple Grove, Minn., warehouse providing stock in the Des Moines, Iowa, and Wausau, Wis., outlets.
According to Steve Schulz, regional sales manager–plains region, adding additional distribution locations with BlueLinx will strategically expand the geographic footprint for Boral TruExterior siding and trim. “As we continue to develop new products – including various siding profiles—to fit market demand, BlueLinx has committed to offering the entire breadth of the Boral TruExterior product line,” Schulz said. “I am excited to have such a reputable distributor in these markets that is focused on long-term, mutually beneficial results.”
