HPM Undertakes Big Expansion

HPM Building Supply is continuing one of the largest expansions in its 99-year history, which will include doubling its Oahu footprint, becoming Hawaii’s exclusive distributor for SCAFCO steel framing, and expanding its product selection to include CertainTeed acoustical ceiling panels and other commercial interior materials.

The Oahu expansion comes less than a month after HPM merged with Miyake Concrete Accessories, Inc., which added four building supply stores and one truss manufacturing plant on Maui to HPM’s eight existing locations across Hawaii Island, Oahu and Kauai.

With the latest expansion, HPM’s Kapolei location has added six new employees and the facility now spans six acres, with 50,000 sq. ft. of covered warehouse space, a lumberyard, steel yard, and custom metal roofing manufacturing.

“By adding steel and commercial interior products to our extensive lineup of lumber, paint, roofing and hardware, we’re able to offer even more for our customers and truly be a one-stop shop for projects of all types and sizes,” said Jason Fujimoto, HPM president and CEO. “HPM is well-known for our lumber selection, and our specialization in lumber stretches back 99 years. Now, we can also supply large commercial and residential projects where steel is required or preferred.”

As SCAFCO’s exclusive distributor in Hawaii, HPM carries all SCAFCO products at wholesale prices and partners with SCAFCO engineering experts on custom orders.

HPM has also entered the commercial interiors market with the addition of CertainTeed acoustical ceiling panels. The panels come in smooth, fissured or textured varieties with a wide range of acoustic performance, visuals and price-points.

HPM intends to continue expanding its selection of commercial interior materials, and the Oahu location will soon regularly stock windows as well as a wider array of moulding, drywall and insulation products.

HPM also provides customers with locally manufactured wood wall panels and trusses, shipped from its Keaau manufacturing facility on Hawaii Island to job sites across all islands.

HPM’s expansion on multiple fronts by adding and expanding locations as well as increasing product selection has created a groundswell of momentum as the company looks ahead to its 100th anniversary in 2021.
