On An Island of Growth W AFTER STARTING AT THE BOTTOM, NAN INC. HAS GROWN TO BECOME A LEADING CONTRACTOR. hen Honolulu construction firm Nan Inc. opened its doors to business in 1990, it was a small, 8(a) business contractor. Today, nearly 20 years later, the company has grown to become one of the largest companies in the Hawaiian construction industry, reporting to have annual revenue between $100 million and $120 million. Nan says it was able to achieve many goals while under the guidance of the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA). The company was incorporated in 1995, graduating from the 8(a) program. That year, SBA recognized Nan as the Prime Contractor of the Year, Hawaii and Region IX, and presented the company with the Administrator’s Award for Excellence. In 2001, Nan says its business status changed from small to large, achieving more than $100 million in revenue, with a bonding capacity of greater than $500 million. Because of its growth, the company says it has increased staff to employ a diverse range of personnel, including engineers and a technical staff, estimators, quality control managers, safety officers, schedulers, field supervisors, skilled tradesmen, and accounting and administrative support members. Since 1999, Nan has been ranked annually among Hawaii’s top-25 contractors in Building Industry magazine. The company has performed approximately 1,900 projects since 1996, worth a total of nearly $700 million. In addition to providing quality services to all clients, Nan has developed a strong working relationship with the military branches; namely, the Army, Army Corps of Engineers, Navy and the Hawaii Air National Guard. The company has become one of the largest military contractors in Hawaii, and has completed multiple types of projects, such as: • Construction of a civil engineer maintenance complex for the Hawaii Air National Guard at Hickam Air Force Base, Oahu, Hawaii; The Nan Inc. Creed • “A customer is the most important person in this business. • “A customer is not dependent on us – we are dependent upon them. • “A customer is not an interruption of our work – they are the purpose of it. • “A customer does us a favor when they give us the opportunity – we are not doing the favor by serving them. • “A customer is not someone to argue or match wits with – nobody has ever won an argument with a customer. • “A customer is a person who brings us their wants – it is our job to handle them profitably for them and for ourselves.” • The renovation of the Bravo 2 Pier Waterfront Facility and Mechanical Shop for the naval shipyard at Pearl Harbor, Oahu; CONSTRUCTION-TODAY.COM JANUARY 2010 http://www.CONSTRUCTION-TODAY.COM
