KEAAU, Hawaii — HPM Building Supply has announced a major expansion of its business, which includes: doubling its Oahu footprint, becoming the state of Hawaii’s exclusive distributor for SCAFCO steel framing, and expanding its product selection to include CertainTeed acoustical ceiling panels and other commercial interior materials.
With this expansion, HPM’s Kapolei location at the Campbell Industrial Park has added six new employees and the facility now spans six acres, with 50,000 square feet of covered warehouse space, a lumber yard, a 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 a fifth-generation local company, we’re pleased to bring top-notch products like SCAFCO steel framing to Hawaii so that our community can build better and live better.”
As SCAFCO’s exclusive distributor in Hawaii, HPM carries all SCAFCO products at wholesale prices and partners with SCAFCO engineering experts on custom orders. SCAFCO steel framing products are manufactured from 100% prime mill certified steel, and exceed industry standards, as they are manufactured from 57 ksi steel in place of 50 ksi and G90 in place of G60 for 68 mil and heavier.
“We’re proud to partner with HPM Building Supply as our exclusive distributor in the Hawaii market,” said Larry Stone, SCAFCO president. “When two long-time companies like HPM and SCAFCO come together, the customer wins because of our experience, expertise and dedication to superior quality.”
HPM has also entered the commercial interiors market with the addition of CertainTeed acoustical ceiling panels. CertainTeed acoustical ceiling panels come in smooth, fissured or textured varieties with a wide range of acoustic performance, visuals and price-points. Acoustical ceiling panels are nearly universal across commercial facilities, including offices, schools, hospitals, restaurants and more.
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, the company announced. 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.
“As the Oahu construction industry continues to see growth, even during the pandemic, we are excited to expand our capacity and capabilities to better serve our customers,” said Mark Schwinn, HPM Oahu regional manager. “Doubling our footprint is just the first step in our vision to grow our presence on this island.”
The announcement of HPM’s 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.
