Outdoor Living Supply (OLS) closed the third quarter of a very active year announcing the acquisition of Honolulu-based Geobunga, an independent distributor of pavers, natural stone, garden elements, bulk materials, and landscape supplies. Former stone and tile importers Layla and Andrew Dedrick, seeing opportunity in an underserved urban gardening market, have grown Geobunga over the past 13 years into Hawaii’s leading outdoor living resource for homeowners, contractors, and landscape designers.
“The acquisition provides us a strong entry into the Hawaiian market,” says OLS CEO Brian Price. “Layla and Andrew have built an outstanding business that combines stellar customer service and product innovation with operational integrity. We look forward to growing with this talented team for years to come.”
“Our business embodies the authentic and tropical feel of Hawaii, as well as our commitment to serving the community with excellent customer service and hospitality,” add the Dedricks, who will continue to lead Geobunga. “We immediately recognized that OLS would celebrate the unique attributes of our brand and that our partnership would provide exceptional value to customers and excellent opportunities to employees.”
