Hawaii 2022 Small Business Person of the Year

Scott Loomer of Truss Systems

Scott Loomer of Truss Systems Hawaii is Hawaii's 2022 Small Business Person of the Year.

Working in the construction industry his entire life, Scott Loomer watched how it evolved from a labor-intensive, back-breaking operation to an industry utilizing modern technology to minimize cost and product waste and improve working conditions for employees. In 1994, he established Truss Systems Hawaii, Inc. with 6 employees.

Twenty-seven years later, Scott now has 27 employees that he was able to retain during COVID-19 with help from two rounds of PPP disaster loan funding. He used this time to make repairs to the property and equipment and focus on the company he started in 2009, ShedPro Hawaii. Prior to the pandemic, the company’s revenues were at an all-time high of over $8.2 million.

Scott is a staunch supporter of Habitat for Humanity. He’s donated product, materials and gave preferential pricing at cost for homes built at Kahoma Village. He holds leadership roles in several industry groups.
