Our story

Committed to help you build better

As a local company with humble origins, HPM has a long history of innovation, perseverance and progressiveness. Yet one thing hasn't changed over the past nine decades — the commitment to provide customers with the best building materials and services.

Employees are Owners

In 1959, HPM began an employee profit-sharing plan. Then in 1977, HPM became one of Hawaii's first companies to establish an Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP). Today, employees own 100% of company stock through the ESOP.

After a year of employment (and at least 1,000 hours worked), employees become part of our ESOP — meaning they're not just employees, but owners.

 

Owner-employees help ensure goals are met by providing exceptional customer service, maximizing sales, minimizing expenses and operating within our core values of integrity, respect and the pursuit of excellence.
