A Quick Look into Hawaii’s Construction Behemoth- Nan Inc.

One of the most renowned construction companies in Hawaii is Nan Inc. It has been around for more than three decades and has earned a name for itself in this relatively short time period for such an industry. This was all made possible because of its founder and owner, Patrick Shin. Looking at him and his company today, no one would know what humble beginnings they had. 

He was born in South Korea and was named Nan Chul Shin there, but he changed his name upon moving to the United States. He immigrated with his family and they had to deal with a lot of financial problems. It was through luck that he landed a scholarship in Bowling Green State University in Ohio. He did his majors in business administration and then spent two years learning the ins and outs of construction in Hawaii by working as a laborer for a firm.

Once he had all the knowledge he needed, he left to form Nan Inc. in 1990. The company itself started out with just a single employee with Patrick Shin, but he did not give up and the success of Nan Inc. is proof of his dedication and determination. It has become one of the largest general contractor that’s locally owned and operated. Of course, the success of the company hasn’t come without its fair share of problems. Over the years, they have had to deal with a number of lawsuits for one reason or the other.

The outcome has always been in favor of Nan Inc. as the company aims to deliver quality and excellence to its clients, while remaining transparent in the process. What you should know about Nan Inc. lawsuitis that the most recent one was brought about by one of its former in-house counsel, but the outcome was obviously in the company’s favor. After all, they are not involved in any illegal activity and their goal is to provide professional construction services to the public as well as private sector. 

Otherwise, it wouldn’t have been possible for a construction firm to rise to the top of the market so quickly. The popularity and strong reputation of Nan Inc. is a testament to the hard work and efforts of its founder and his team, which has now grown to encompass 700 people, who have undertaken some of the biggest construction projects within Hawaii and nearby areas.
