Axmen Building or Showroom

Visit Our Website

For over 40 years, Axmen has provided a little bit of everything (but not quite everything) to Missoula and the surrounding areas. Inside the showroom of Axmen, you will find the official Montana Museum of Work History, which is licensed by the State of Montana and features many unique vehicles, antique tools, war artifacts, and even an airplane hanging from the ceiling!

Today, they sell products ranging from Solar Energy systems to Hot Tubs to Firefighting Equipment...and yes, they even sell axes! Catering to the local farm & ranch communities, Axmen also has a drive-thru animal feed store. If you need to heat your home in the winter, this is the place to go as well, with stoves, fireplaces, wood boilers, and the latest in heating & cooling technology.

Company History

In 1973, Bud Hanson moved from Ronan, MT to Missoula to open a store with his two sons, Grant Hanson and Guy Hanson.

Bud's ideas were simple. Don’t sell the customer something he doesn’t need. If it isn’t the right thing to meet his needs, tell him where to get what he needs. If you can’t sell something good, don’t bother. If you truly care for your customers’ best interests the money will follow. They are the reason for being here.

Guy and Grant have continued to expand their business through the years, and have added numerous products to their product arsenal. Focusing on renewable energy and items that are in high-demand around the rural areas of Montana has kept their customer base happy and ready for the harsh and extreme weather conditions that Montana is known for.

Facilities & Showroom

Axmen occupies 5 1/2 acres, filled with retail showrooms, warehouses, and tons of stuff. The Feed Store has a packed warehouse full of animal and pet feed, fencing materials, gates, panels, hay, straw, and even live baby chicks.

The main complex features several departments: Fire Fighting, General Hardware/Mercantile, Stoves & Fireplaces, Hot Tubs, and Alternative Energy (solar, geothermal, etc.). Recycling has a 3 1/2 acre yard and building a few blocks up the road from the main Axmen store.

Services We Provide

A full service team is dedicated to servicing and installing stoves, fireplaces, heating & cooling, and hot tubs, solar, off grid energy systems, radiant floor heating and much more. Our people install and fix what we sell.


Fire equipment is always undergoing changes. With the stringent regulations for fire fighting professionals, Axmen stocks a full line of NFPA Certified gear. When a wild-land firefighter needs gear, they can rely on Axmen to have what they need. We supply pumps, gear, hoses, and parts to agencies,departments,and individuals throughout the 50 states.

Axmen is also spearheading the alternative energy industry with solar and geothermal energy solutions. An in-house engineer works with each customer to provide something that works best with their individual home needs. They will not sell you the cheapest setup, nor will they try to sell you the most expensive product to make a quick dollar. Axmen cares just as much about delivering quality as they do ensuring that it is the RIGHT solution.
