Our History

Pete Hunter started Hunter Construction in 1988 out of Alpena, Michigan. Initially Pete started out doing residential construction and built his first house when he was only 16 years old. For the last 27 years our main focus has been on commercial construction which includes building steel warehouses, restaurants, garages, grocery stores, and gas stations, all from the ground up. One of our most frequent jobs are gas station remodels. We have completed all of the RVI and RVIE projects for Alpena Oil, and most recently the latest RVIE upgrade for Forward Oil Company and Schmuckal Oil Company. These remodels include LED lighting, canopy work, LED signs, interior remodeling and dispenser improvements.

After working in and around gas stations for so long the one thing that always stuck out in Pete’s mind was the deteriorating gas pump islands. It seemed everywhere he looked stations would have state of the art new technology in lighting, canopies and signage, but still had old, paint chipped, corroded pump islands. After several years of brainstorming and a few different methods tried, Hunter Pump Islands was invented and patented.

Reasons You Need Us

With our vast experience working around gas stations we know that down time means lost sales and unhappy customers, so each pump island is only out of commission for 10-30 minutes while the concrete is being poured on that island. Other than that, customers are pumping gas while we are working on improving their experience at the pump.

Hunter Pump Islands continues to be a family owned and operated business staged out of Alpena, MI, but has traveled all over Michigan, Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Iowa, West Virginia, Florida and New York.

The finished product rivals brand new pump islands in appearance, at a fraction of the cost. The installation crew was fast, efficient, and professional. The disruption to our flow of business was hardly noticeable, taking only 2 days to complete the job.

  • Hunter Pump Islands did a wonderful job installing our new pump islands this Spring. They were extremely professional, working hard to keep our small station approachable for customers as they completed the install. They respected our need to remain in business as they worked, only blocking off part of the parking lot and islands as they worked on the other. The results were absolutely amazing! They have not only lived up to my expectations but have far exceeded them! The best part is that we will no longer have to spend hours of scraping and painting in order to get mediocre results. Thank you so much for our new polished look!

  • We recently employed Hunter Pump Islands to extend and upgrade four islands at our gas station in Naples, Florida. I cannot express how pleased we are with the whole experience of dealing with the fantastic contractor. Their extremely professional team arrived on time, finished ahead of schedule and put great importance on minimizing disruption to our business and ensuring customers were in no way inconvenienced. The quality of their work was exceptional and our new islands with the stainless steel finish have greatly enhanced our appearance and cut down on maintenance. I would completely recommend Hunter Pump Islands in every way as they are without a doubt an excellent operation in every way.
