Patrick Shin – How he Founded Nan Inc.


There haven’t been many construction businesses and companies that have managed to reach the same level of success as that of Nan Inc. The company was founded by Patrick Shin more than thirty years ago in 1990. In construction years, this is not a very long period of time, but despite its youth, the company has become a smashing success to say the least. Specializing in preconstruction, design build and general contracting, Nan Inc. has topped the charts in every aspect, from its promptness to affordability. This is one of the primary reasons that it has found itself on the receiving end of numerous honors, awards and accolades for the work it has done and the services it has delivered.

However, it is important to understand that the Nan Inc. Construction founder is key to the company’s success because without his hard work and dedication, they wouldn’t have been able to get where they are today. There is no denying that he was instrumental to Nan Inc. because he is the one who established the company in Honolulu, Hawaii all by his lonesome. He was originally known as Nan Chul Shin in South Korea, but changed his name to Patrick upon moving to the United States.

He was living in a one-bedroom apartment with his family and helping his brother with his fishing business when a football scholarship allowed him to go to Bowling Green State University. On completion of his majors in business administration, he went to Hawaii where he worked for a construction company. Two years later, he walked out to launch Nan Inc. and started working with just one laborer. He took on all kinds of projects and didn’t shy away from any kind of work. He was willing to tackle all kinds of tasks and did so with integrity and the utmost determination.

Gradually, he was able to build up his company’s reputation and they began to get some big projects. Now, Nan Inc. is a force to be reckoned with in the construction industry of Hawaii and simultaneously handles multimillion-dollar projects, with a workforce of 600 people. They have worked for different industries and even for the local and federal government. Both Patrick Shin and Nan Inc. are committed to contributing to the community as well, due to which the company as well as its founder continue to give back by donating to a horde of charities and causes.
