Outdoor Living Supply makes three strategic acquisitions
Outdoor Living Supply (OLS), a distribution platform for outdoor living products with a focus on hardscapes, announced the acquisitions of Bulks Landscape Supply, Edgefield Plant & Stone Center and Parker Hardscapes. These significant acquisitions will extend OLS’s reach into both existing and new key growth markets.
The companies will continue to operate as independent distributors focused on natural stone, manufactured stone, pavers, bulk materials, and other related outdoor living products and accessories. The partnership with OLS will enable them to strengthen their sales and distribution capabilities and provide access to opportunities in new and existing geographies.
“I am thrilled to welcome the Bulks Landscape Supply, Edgefield Plant & Stone Center and Parker Hardscapes teams to the OLS family,” said Brian Price, CEO of OLS. “We ended 2021 with tremendous momentum and are well-positioned for accelerated growth in 2022. The Bulks and Edgefield acquisitions strengthen our current footprint and capacity in the Atlanta and North Carolina markets while Parker Hardscapes provides us with an exciting entry into Nevada. We are looking forward to working with these new team members to kick-off this next phase of growth.”
