Landenberg, PA, – (August 27, 2019) – Skyland USA announced today that Great Western Supply has joined its official rooflite® blender network in Olympia, Washington, solidifying its reach in the Pacific Northwest. Great Western Supply is a long-time family business that specializes in offering high-quality, recycled landscape and garden products to the greater Seattle and greater Portland, Oregon areas.
rooflite, the premier provider of green roof media in the United States, has focused in recent years on expanding its blender network to regions of the country that will see growth in the green roof market in years to come. The Pacific Northwest is an area that is sure to see demand for green roofs as urban areas embrace the technology for a variety of environmental and amenity reasons. Great Western Supply is based in the Washington state capital of Olympia, providing an ideal base to get high-quality rooflite soil products to Washington and Oregon.
Great Western Supply can trace its roots to the late 1800s, when it was a local dairy, and over the years, it has transformed itself into a company that focuses on the re-use of products, including cow manure, mushroom compost, and yard debris compost. It now has a nursery where it sells plants and gardening products. Great Western Supply is now ready to provide rooflite soil products for local green roof projects in the Washington and Oregon areas.
“Great Western Supply is a long-time established business that is known for providing high-quality service and products. We are thrilled to partner with them to bring our rooflite soil products to an important region of the country.”
