Building Depot

The seeds of Building Depot as we know it today were laid in the late 1970s by the founder Mr. Rodney Lucia (1949 – 2008). In 1977 he established the company Curacao Wire Products Inc. The company expanded the assortment over the years with hardware and building materials. In 2002 it household goods and in 2003 the Cooperation with Leen Bakker started. This added a wide assortment of furniture to the store.

On May 16, 2013, disaster hits: A big fire destroyed the entire retail complex. An outlet store on the Santa Rosaweg was opened soon after to keep going while preparations were made for the reconstruction.

On November 14th 2014 the new Mega Store opened its doors to the public. The store has further grown over the years to 19.000 M2, and is serviced by 160+ employees.

In August of 2018 Building Depot opened its new Kitchen department through its successful affiliation with Keuken Depot of the Netherlands. And the company’s most recent expansion was the establishment of a brand new 3000 M2 store in Bonaire.

At this moment, Building Depot is the home improvement store in Curacao with the widest assortment, offering building materials, hardware, household goods and appliances, furniture and kitchens. Through its two stores, two warehouses, a drive-through, a delivery service and a webshop, the company supplies everything that consumers, businesses and construction companies need, in relation to construction and home improvement.
