Happy Holidays from the Owner-employees of HPM

Did you know that HPM Building Supply is 100% owned by its employees? The company has a history of innovation, especially when it comes to supporting staff. In 1959 it was one of the first Hawaii companies to start a profit sharing plan, and then when ESOPs (Employee Stock Ownership Plans) became available in the 70’s, HPM was one of the first companies in the state to convert.

But why would this be important to you? Because each and every time you work with HPM, the Owner will take care of you. They have a special motivation to make sure you get the level of service you deserve. 

All of HPM’s 260 owner-employees on Oahu, Kauai and the Big Island wish you a memorable holiday season and look forward to working with you on exciting projects in the New Year.
For questions call 682-8560 on Oahu or toll-free 1-877-841-7633 from any island.

Register Online!  On Wednesday, Dec. 18 from 12:00pm-1:00pm please join our Committee on the Environment (COTE) for a 1hr screening of an independent film about integration of nature in our designed environment at the Center for Architecture.

Bring your own lunch and beverage for this 55min video and take a break from your deadlines!

Film Information: The "Biophilic Design: The Architecture of Life (60 mins)" looks at the evolution of architecture from its origins to today’s most celebrated buildings.  The film highlights designs that have succeeded in connecting people and their environment in the best ways: Hospitals where patients heal faster, workspaces where employees are more productive and communities where neighbors regularly interact with each other.  The practice of biophilic design can create more healthy, productive built environments for today’s communities around the world; what are the lessons for us in Hawaii?
