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.
