"This acquisition allows us to enhance our service offerings and better serve our clients and partners throughout Hawai'i. We are excited about the potential for innovation and growth this partnership will bring."
The addition of Grace Pacific, with its talented team of professionals and state-of-the-art facilities, will significantly contribute to the continued success of Nan, Inc. This acquisition demonstrates Nan, Inc.'s commitment to investing in Hawai'i's infrastructure and supporting local job opportunities.
"Grace Pacific will continue to operate under its well-established brand, and its existing management and staff will remain in place to ensure a seamless transition," added Shin.
