BlueLinx Holdings is a Fortune 1000 company based in Atlanta, Georgia. It was formed in May 2004, when senior management purchased the assets of the distribution division from Georgia-Pacific. Cerberus Capital Management provided the equity financing and became majority owner.
The distribution division of Georgia-Pacific Corporation had begun operations in 1954 with 13 warehouses used for storage and distribution of Georgia-Pacific plywood. Over the next 40 years, the division grew to over 130 warehouses nationwide, offering a wide range of products. In 1994, the division consolidated its warehouses and created two large sales and operations centers in Denver, CO and Atlanta, GA. for the purposes of operational efficiency.
BlueLinx completed its initial public offering on the New York Stock Exchange on December 14, 2004.
The company's operations consist of a network of 39 distribution centers located throughout the U.S.

NPS is a customer loyalty metric that measures customers’ willingness to not only return for another purchase or service but also make a recommendation to their family, friends or colleagues.
It is a powerful and effective technique, which can greatly increase a company's revenue if used properly.
The main advantages of NPS are close correlation with a company's growth and easy collection, interpretation and communication of the data.
Net Promoter Score is a number from -100 from 100.
Scores higher than 0 are typically considered to be good and scores above 50 are considered to be excellent.
The industry average for Capital Goods / Wholesale Distributors is 0.
The final Net Promoter Score of a company strongly depends on a context in which the satisfaction is measured.
Consider an example: If BlueLinx Holdings Inc. sends out NPS surveys immediately after purchase, they are tracking their customers' initial excitement and the checkout experience.
On the other hand, if they survey their customers a few weeks after the purchase they are also tracking how satisfied their customers are with their products and services over time.
Therefore, comparing the NPS score of BlueLinx Holdings Inc. with your own without any further context is not that useful.
What is extremely useful though, is using the NPS methodology to track the satisfaction of your customers over time. That's where Customer.guru comes in.
