A small company dedicated to quality and innovation, Kaikor Construction has demonstrated the ability to think big as one of Hawaii’s 2011 Top 250 companies.  Established in 1985, this general engineering contractor began with just five employees in one Oahu office. Today it has grown to nearly 50 employees and has expanded to five of the seven Neighbor Islands, Wake Island and Johnston Atoll. Its work volume in 1990 was $2 million; and now exceeds $14 million. No small feat in Hawaii’s volatile construction industry.

“Our growth can be attributed to our people who make Kaikor a company that goes above and beyond our clients expectations, “says President and Chief Executive Officer Stephen Baginski. “We have cultivated a learning and teaching work environment where each employee’s destiny is unwritten and it’s what they decide that matters. Our goal is to develop each person to the fullest,”  says Baginski, who serves as an example, joining the company in 1990 as a quantity take off engineer, then later heading operations and eventually becoming company President in 2005.

Working primarily as a General Contractor and occasionally as a subcontractor in partnership with major Hawaii construction companies Kaikor is the premier contractor on structural concrete projects, including bridges, concrete paving, retaining wall, piers docks and other major infrastructure projects in the state.

Kaikor’s reputation speaks for itself, and is known for its competitive pricing, superior quality, aggressive scheduling, client satisfaction and a safe workplace for it’s employees. In fact, for the past two years, Kaikor Construction has won the prestigious Build Hawaii Award for Excellence for two of their more complicated bridge jobs. In additional they garnered several safety awards to add to their growing number of accolades.

“Our vision is to stay on the cutting edge of technology and innovation to continually improve and support the work of our field and office staff.  We have a sound financial base, large bonding capacity and a wealth of talented employees, and are looking to expand our Pacific presence in partnership with other Hawaii companies,” says Baginski. “In addition to expansion, we will continue to live by our slogan, ‘Cementing communities, bridging the islands.’ ”
