HONOLULU — In a major expansion of its product lines, services, and facilities, HPM Building Supply said it has acquired 87ZERO, a Honolulu-based firm specializing in custom cabinetry; architectural elements; furniture, fixtures, and equipment (FF&E); premium appliances; and global sourcing and manufacturing of interior products.

The acquisition establishes a new division called 87ZERO by HPM that will service large-scale projects for developers, hoteliers, and contractors as well as provide affordable luxury interior solutions for homeowners. HPM also plans to leverage 87ZERO’s global manufacturing relationships to develop and source products to serve both the high-end and affordable housing markets.

“The opportunity to add 87ZERO to our HPM ‘ohana came about because of the values we have in common as much as a desire to expand our services for Hawai‘i’s construction and housing market,” said Jason Fujimoto, HPM president and CEO. “87ZERO and HPM first connected through our shared passion for helping to build more attainable housing for Hawai‘i families. We saw the potential to combine our strengths, create new, innovative solutions for our community,
and provide an even more seamless, one-stop shop for customers at every price point.”

Founded in 2007, 87ZERO is known for its work in condominiums, commercial and hospitality facilities, and single-family residences. Across two showrooms spanning 5,300 square feet in the Nā Lama Kukui Lifestyle and Design Center – HPM’s first showrooms on O‘ahu – 87ZERO’s product lines include their own Italian-crafted SmartCucina cabinetry line as well as global kitchen brand Ernestomeda and premium appliances from Bosch, Gaggenau, Miele, and Thermador. With manufacturing partners in Singapore, Malaysia, Vietnam, Italy, Germany, and the United States,
87ZERO provides custom interior solutions and architectural elements.

87ZERO’s 15-member staff has become part of HPM’s team of more than 500 owner-employees throughout Hawai‘i.
