Building long term relationships, that philosophy remains the core of Takamine Construction. When the company was founded by Craig and Audrey Takamine in 2003, it was the vision to create a quality construction business that helped strengthen the Big Island community. Born and raised in Hilo, Hawaii and the eldest of five children, Craig learned early on the importance of family and community connections. After receiving his high school diploma from Waiakea High School, Craig enrolled in the Hawaii Community College Carpentry Program, through which he was awarded the Golden Hammer from HPM and graduated top of his class in 1995. From 1995 to 2003, Craig gained experience in all areas of residential construction through working with various contractors, and in 2003, he obtained his own Contractors license. Building his business from scratch with no office space and just two employees was going to be a challenge. However, that year Takamine Construction managed to pick up contracts for 4 new homes. Today, Takamine Construction employs 18 and has built over 50 homes. Projects also include single-family custom residential homes; home renovations and repairs; single-wall repair and renovation; commercial alterations; commercial repair; and maintenance and demolition. Takamine Construction’s continued growth in […]

About CU Hawaii CU Hawaii was organized in 1955 as the Big Island Businessmen’s Federal Credit Union. As we grew to become a community credit union, we changed our name to JCC Credit Union. Widening our vision towards the 21st century, we changed our name again. Proud of who we are and where we live, we’re now CU Hawaii Federal Credit Union. CU Hawaii is a financial cooperative owned by its members who share a common bond of employment, residence or association. As a credit union, we are unique because we are part of a movement with objectives different from those of other financial institutions. As a not-for-profit financial cooperative, our primary objective is to provide exceptional service to our members, rather than making a profit for stockholders. By collectively pooling members’ resources, you as a member, can get low cost loans and earn higher rates on your savings. We are a full-service credit union serving over 25,000 members with assets in excess of $245 million. During these years of continued growth, the philosophy of the credit union has not changed. CU Hawaii is here to serve its members- the owners- and that makes important difference. Our focus is you.

Proudly serving the Hawaiian construction industry for over 60 years, Bacon Universal sells, rents, and repairs heavy equipment for construction, industrial, and agricultural purposes. We have all the equipment, parts and services that these businesses could ever possibly need. Our History Our company was initially incorporated in Hawaii as Edward R. Bacon Company of Hawaii Limited on June 4th, 1947 for the specific purpose of acquiring all the assets and liabilities of the Edward R. Bacon General Partnership located in San Francisco. Initially we started selling and servicing small industrial units and in 1958 acquired the Ford line of agricultural equipment. On August 22, 1961, our company was acquired by Alexander & Baldwin, which at the time was one of the big five companies in Hawaii. Our name was then changed to Bacon Company, Inc. In 1977, the Carpenter Group of Australia, who at the time owned the Universal Equipment Company of Hawaii, purchased Bacon Company Inc., and merged the two companies, with Bacon Company having the dominant role. The new reconstruction was then named Bacon Universal Company Inc., and has remained so to this day. In 1994 Bacon Universal Company Limited Inc., was acquired by Yoshire International Ltd. Today […]
