If you have been looking at construction companies in Hawaii, you will come to know that Nan Inc. is one of the top ten firms that can be found in the state. What sets this company apart from the rest is that it is relatively young, as it has only been around for three decades, having been founded in 1990. Despite this, Nan Inc. has managed to get a number of accolades and awards for the work it has done and the contribution it has made. Its offices can be found in Honolulu, Hawaii, but the company has moved beyond the Hawaiian Islands and also taken projects in some remote locations over the Pacific.
These include American Samoa, Palau, Kwajalein Atolls, Guam, Saipan and Johnston. However, it should be noted that none of this would have been possible if it wasn’t for the man behind the company. In order to know how the company came to be, you need to learn about Patrick Shin: owner of Nan Inc. He is also quite renowned in the state of Hawaii, not just because he founded Nan Inc., but also because he is a philanthropist who has done a lot for people.
He was born as Nan Chul Shin in South Korea and moved to the USA because it had always been his dream. He also chose to change his name for adapting to the new country, but had to live in a one-bedroom apartment with his siblings as finances were right. He also worked with his broker in his fishing business in New York. What set him on the path to success was the scholarship he got to attend Bowling Green State University and he majored in business administration. This was when he moved to Hawaii and got a job with a construction company for two years.
This gave him the idea to set up his own company, which he did and had only one employee in the start. Currently, there are more than 500 employees working for Nan Inc. and it has successfully completed 3,000 projects. They have made great contributions to the enhancement and appeal of Hawaii, something Patrick Shin had always wanted to do. The company has worked on historical sites in Hawaii for renovation purposes, helped in the construction of numerous resorts and hotels and has also been assigned numerous projects by the local and federal government because of its dedication.
