Concrete and natural stone hardscapes retailer Outdoor Living Supply has acquired Apache Stone, a wholly owned subsidiary of Wisconsin-based Halquist Stone Co. The transaction includes hardscape, masonry and landscape yards in Phoenix and Apache Junction, Ariz. plus Las Vegas, home to a Bedrock Landscape Supply yard that OLS acquired in late-2022. The existing management team will continue to lead Apache Stone, ensuring continuity and consistency for employees, customers and supplier partners.
“Apache Stone is an ideal complement to our location in Las Vegas and gives us entry into the fast-growing Phoenix market,” says OLS CEO Brian Price. “This partnership provides exciting potential to accelerate our growth platform in the Southwest, delivering tremendous value to our customers.”
“Through its commitment to providing superior service and products, Apache Stone has grown into a leading regional distributor,” adds Halquist Stone principal Bill Halquist. “The partnership with OLS will offer Apache Stone additional resources to generate growth and provide expanded opportunities for employees and customers.”
