In 1977, Mr. Rodney Lucia started a manufacturing company
of steel products for the building industry on the Dutch
Antilles. After more than 20 years of production, the
owner saw the necessity to diversify his activities.
In 1999 he started a trading business
in hardware and building materials. In 2001 the company had the possibility to buy his neighbor
which was an important retailer in households and furniture.
When we merged the companies together, Building Depot
had the widest range of products for the male and female
In 2008 the owner Mr. Rodney Lucia handed over his leadership
to his new management team which consists of the C.E.O.
General Affairs Mr. Peter Luiten and the C.E.O. Commercial Affairs
Mr. Roderick Lucia.

The transition from production to retail was very successful
and within 10 years the number of employees has grown
from 25 to 140.
The store begun with a space of merely 2000m2 and has
grown over the years to now 20.000m2.
Building Depot Curacao B.V. is now the major player as
the biggest home improvement store on Curaçao.
To maintain his growth, the company decided in 2008 to
add extra warehouse space, a showroom for outdoor living
and a very modern Drive Thru for building materials to
their premises. Pictures from these investments can be
found under the header Expansion Store.
