REDHAMMER, LLC. was started to fulfill the great need for Hawaii's small and mid-sized construction companies to have more timely, accurate, and informative financial and operational information. Bonding agents, large general contractors, and bankers confirmed what we were seeing: Almost without exception, construction company owners and managers did not have the information to optimize their bidding, cash flow, and profits, and were not even sure that they knew the financial state of their own business!
We realized that we could make a huge difference in the operation and profitability of Hawaii's construction companies by giving them the benefit of the processes and analysis we developed. With strong encouragement from construction industry insurance and finance providers, REDHAMMER was started.
The principals of REDHAMMER, LLC. have dozens of years of experience that enable us to provide our construction industry clients with the innovative and professional assistance that is required to get to the next level of success and beyond.
We are dedicated to making our clients more competitive and more profitable (with less headaches) by giving the owners and managers of our client firms the kind of business insight that their competition simply does not have.
