Outdoor Living Supply, a distribution platform for outdoor living products with a focus on hardscapes, has acquired C&R Stone World Inc., Stoneworld Utah L.L.C. and Cedar Stone Supply, Inc. (collectively, Stoneworld), full-service distributors of natural stone, masonry, hardscape and landscape supplies. This acquisition expands OLS’ footprint in the Mountain states, adding five strategic locations in Utah and Idaho.
Headquartered in Mapleton, UT., Stoneworld was founded by Rhett Robison in 2003. In subsequent years, Robison, together with Kolby Sawyer, Cody Petersen and Beau Brady, leveraged their strong customer base and generated regional growth via the addition of new locations in Utah and Idaho. Over its 20-year history, Stoneworld has grown into a leading independent distributor thanks to its quality products, operational expertise and focus on providing the highest level of customer service. Going forward, the existing management team will continue with the business, ensuring continuity and consistency for employees, customers and supplier partners.
“We are delighted to welcome the Stoneworld team to the OLS family of companies,” said Brian Price, CEO of OLS. “Rhett, Kolby, Cody and Beau have built an exceptional team and reputation in this dynamic market, that includes Salt Lake City. There are many obvious product synergies and opportunities for our platform to accelerate growth, and we are excited by the potential of what we can accomplish together.”
“We decided to partner with OLS based on their unique business model and reputation for taking care of their people. I am very proud of the culture we have built and grateful to have found a partner in OLS who is committed to preserving our legacy and supporting our team as we embark on this next chapter of growth,” added Rhett Robison, owner of Stoneworld. “We look forward to the extensive opportunities OLS will provide our employees and customers, alike.”
