A family-owned and operated company, Benson was founded
in 1976 by Mr. Liam Bu Vy. IT was the year Super Typhoon Pamela
devastatingly hit Guam and destroyed many homes and businesses that
Mr. Vy noticed Guam was in dire need of building materials. He acted
quickly in establishing his building and construction materials
store in Hagåtña (fka Maite) in order to provide the
people with the materials they needed to help them on the road to
Through the years, Benson has earned its reputation as one of Guam's
leading suppliers of building and construction materials. In 1980,
Mr. Cencio Tan C. Vy, the youngest son of Mr. Liam Bu Vy and the
President of Benson Hardware, had a vision of transforming Benson's
image of not just being one of Guam's leading building and construction
materials supply store, but in addition, becoming Guam's largest
Home Improvement Center. Mr. Liam Bu Vy, together with the vision
of his son, built a new and larger store conveniently located along
the highway of Route 8 in Maite.
In 1996, Mr. Liam Bu Vy passed on, but its vision continued on
through Mr. Cencio Tan C. Vy. In 2001, Benson celebrated its 25
year anniversary on Guam with an appreciation party held for the
public at its main store. It is through many years of Mr. Vy's hard
work and perseverance that Benson is becoming Guam's largest Home
Improvement Center. The success of Benson, however, could not have
been accomplished without recognizing the loyal men and women employed
with Benson who have worked along with Mr. Vy and have contributed
tremendously to its success and to our valued customers who have
patronized our business over the years.
