Over the last two years, OVS has acquired four irrigation and water systems focused companies, building upon its customized and innovative irrigation capabilities. OVS offers growers a comprehensive solution covering product sourcing and distribution, custom design, installation and consultation for some of the largest commercial growing operations on the West Coast. Previous acquisitions include Davis Pump & Electric Motors of Sunnyside, Washington, acquired in December of 2020, and Cascade Water Systems and Ridgway Supply of Lafayette, Oregon, which were both acquired in July 2020.
