HPM Building Supply Expands to Lānaʻi

HPM Building Supply has announced it will be opening its first store on the island of Lānaʻi. The new location in Lānaʻi City, Hawaii, will include a retail store and drive-through lumberyard. The 5,000-square foot space was previously known as Lānaʻi Hardware and Lumber store, which closed in 2023 when its former operators retired. The store is currently being renovated and is slated to open April 2024.

“The expansion to the beautiful island of Lānaʻi marks an exciting new chapter for HPM as we introduce our company to the community of Lānaʻi and serve their needs,” says Jason Fujimoto, HPM chairman and CEO. “This opportunity allows us to provide valuable resources, a wide range of products and diverse materials to a unique market like Lānaʻi, and we look forward to developing a collaborative relationship with its residents and businesses.”

Early plans for the new retail space include the addition of live plants sourced from landowner Pūlama Lānaʻi’s nursery. HPM core products such as lumber, plywood, hardware, power tools, paint, plumbing and electrical supplies and flooring will be in stock. New retail options include pet food and supplies and various seasonal products. Custom ordering will also be available for Lānaʻi customers who wish to purchase specialty lumber, windows, doors, cabinets, window coverings and manufactured products, like HPM’s Custom Metal Roofing.

HPM plans to engage the Lānaʻi community, as well as current team members, in its recruitment efforts for the new store. The 100% employee-owned company looks to add six key positions.
