Hawaii Specialty Building Contractor

Hawaii Specialty Building Contractor


After fifty years in the business this successful specialty building contractor says it’s time to focus on other aspects of his life and turn over this great Hawaii construction business to a younger person. 


They are a one-stop shop for all aspects of their work, so customers just have one contractor to work with.  They have developed an excellent reputation for high quality design and construction, on-time job completion and superior service and most of their new business comes from excellent customer and industry referrals.


Business is great.  In 2020 the Business made over $700,000 in seller’s profits (SDE) based on over $2.8 million in revenue.  Currently (May 2021) their contacted backlog is four times what it was in May 2020; sales during the first 4 months of 2021 are 58% higher than the same 4 months in 2020.  They are now quoting business for 2022.  As an essential business they did not have to close in 2020 due to Covid-19.


Their growth is based on the extraordinarily strong residential and commercial construction demand.  They believe their market share in their island market is as high as 75%.  The owner has developed an excellent high profit business model which lets him take 4 to 6 weeks of vacation per year (pre-Covid).
