Hume (Hume Plasterboard Pty Ltd, trading as Hume Building Products, and known as "Hume") is an Australian building supplies company, founded in 2002 and headquartered at South Granville, in Sydney, New South Wales.[1][2][3] Hume has a national delivery network and is an authorised distributor of USG Boral plasterboard, Rondo, and James Hardie building products, amongst other brands. Its commercial division provides supply and installation services for products such as flooring.[4]


Hume has been active since 2002 as a plasterboard supply specialist, and has grown to supply a wide range of building products, tools and accessories, including commercial products such as flooring and cladding and kitchen and bathroom cabinetry.[2][4][5]

According to its website, Hume was founded by businessman Nick Cai, and started out in 2002 as an Australia Plasterboard Company (APC) franchisee store with three employees selling BGC Plasterboard. It had rapid growth between 2007-2009, becoming a BGC Plasterboard franchisee with 30 employees and a distributor of USG Boral Plasterboard.[6]

In December 2014, the company opened its flagship national headquarters at South Granville, as "Australia Building Centre", on a warehouse site comprising over twenty thousand square metres, showrooms, and an undercover loading area of over two thousand square metres. The branch became the seventh Hume store in operation.[7][8][9]

In 2017, Hume began trading as "Hume Building Products" reflecting its expanding product range.[6][2] The leasing of a 2965 sq m office-warehouse at 7-9 Yato Road, Prestons, in Sydney's west in 2018 brought the growing business's branch stores across Sydney and Melbourne to nine, serviced by over 230 staff.[10][11][6]
