Our History

When Hume started its journey in a small plasterboard warehouse on the Hume Highway at Lansvale in 2002, our founder and director Nick Cai set himself a simple formula for success: “promise and deliver”. Despite growth, this customer-focused approach remains the essence of the Hume spirit today.

The business started out as an Australia Plasterboard Company (APC) franchisee store with three employees selling BGC Plasterboard at  Lanvsale. In 2007, Hume became a BGC Plasterboard franchisee, starting a long period of growth. Hume’s Lakemba branch opened in 2008 and the business became a distributor of USG Boral Plasterboard, changing our trading name to Plasterboard Trade Centre (PTC).

In 2010, Hume opened operations in Victoria at Sunshine West in Melbourne, and our Alexandria branch opened in Sydney. Pymble branch opened in 2011 and by 2014 we had reached 100 employees under the trading name Australia Building Centre, reflecting the diversifying nature of our business beyond our plasterboard range.

Canterbury Bankstown Bulldogs
Our “H” on the sideline: Premium Partners of the Bulldogs

Our Victorian operations expanded in 2013 with the opening of a new Melbourne headquarters at Preston and in December 2014, Hume opened a new flagship national headquarters South Granville in Sydney, strategically located in the South Granville Industrial precinct, central to Woodville Road, the Hume Highway and Great Western Highway. We became corporate sponsor of the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs, and Hume’s distinctive “H” became a familiar sight for league fans tuning in to watch Bulldogs home games. 

In 2017, Hume became “Hume Building Products” with an expanding product base now including the  Hume Commercial range, offering supply and installation of flooring and specialising in carpets, tiles, timber and vinyl floors, as well as kitchens, bathrooms, cladding, skylights, render products, timber products, appliances and doors.

2018, saw Hume expand its operations at Pymble and open a new branch at Prestons in greater western Sydney, bringing the branch total to 9 stores nationally, with over 230 staff.
