Outdoor Living Supply (OLS) – a distribution platform for outdoor living products focusing on hardscapes – recently announced today that it has acquired Apache Stone, a wholly owned subsidiary of Halquist Stone Company. And Apache Stone is a full-service distributor of masonry, hardscape, and landscape supplies. This deal expands OLS’ footprint in the Southwest, adding three strategic locations in Nevada and Arizona.
Throughout the company’s 43-year history, Apache Stone has demonstrated an unrelenting commitment to product quality, operational expertise, and customer service, which has made it a leading distributor to industry professionals. And the existing local management team will continue to lead the business, ensuring continuity and consistency for employees, customers, and supplier partners.
Faegre Drinker Biddle & Reath LLP served as the legal advisor to OLS.
“We are pleased to welcome the Apache Stone team to the OLS family of companies. Apache Stone is an ideal complement to our existing Bedrock Landscape Supply location in Las Vegas and gives us entry into the fast-growing Phoenix market. This partnership provides exciting potential to accelerate our growth platform in the Southwest, delivering tremendous value to our customers.”
