Nan, Inc. was founded in Honolulu in 1990 by Mr. Nan Chul Shin, stemming from the modest dream of a young entrepreneur hoping to help Hawaii build its future. From very humble beginnings with only himself and one laborer at his side, Mr. Shin began his company by tackling the smallest of construction projects with determination and integrity; the first contract being the installation of a single road sign. Fast forward to today, Nan, Inc. has grown to become the State’s largest locally owned and operated general contractor, with the capacity and expertise to execute the most complex projects. Specializing in preconstruction, general contracting, and design-build services, we at Nan, Inc. are committed to carrying forward the tradition of delivering excellence, operating with integrity, and being mindful of our clients’ needs in every project, while providing safe, rewarding, and growth opportunities for our employees.
