With GWPR’s assistance, Gentry Homes celebrated nearly 50 years of providing new homes for Hawaii’s families in Waipio by Gentry and in the Ewa by Gentry master-planned communities.
Today, marketing efforts include the ‘Gentry Green Living’ product line which could be the most energy efficient new homes on Oahu today. Having earned the Energy Star Housing Award from the EPA, several Parade of Homes Grand Champion awards and a prestigious LEED Platinum designation, Gentry has built over 12,000 homes in Hawaii since its establishment in 1968.
Today, CRW has satellite offices in Guam and the Philippines, and has extended its grasp to include strategic partnerships with Allied Pacific Builders in Hawaii and Guam, SESR for composite building systems and Honolulu Roofing. Their strong belief in sustainable initiatives led to strategic alliances with Greenpath Technologies, a leading NHO 8(a) energy firm who opened Hawaii’s only non-glass PV facility for product development and low-threshold manufacturing of portable power solutions to support commercial markets, U.S. military, HADR resilience and global sustainability initiatives.
In 2013, the company celebrated its 20th anniversary with 80+ employees at its new headquarters in Waipahu. CRW earned the 2013 Roofing Contractors Association of Hawaii Awards, Inc. 5000 designation and other accolades and actively initiates the intimate profit, expense and growth process for their clients, securing nearly 20% of Hawaii’s roofing industry in 2012.
