Here at Flint Group, we’re bursting with excitement. I’m just going to come out and say it, because I can’t take it anymore: We’re opening a Hawaii office!
Good question! Aside from the warmer temps, amazing seafood and epic surfing (need we go on?), Hawaii offers immense opportunity for Flint Group. Our leadership team has been considering the location and planning the launch for several years now, which is why it’s so exciting to FINALLY be able to share it with you.
Thanks to Hawaii’s mild, year-round climate, the state has a rich agricultural industry. It grows everything from sugarcane and pineapple to coffee and macadamia nuts. In fact, Hawaii supplies 90 percent of the world’s macadamia nuts and is the only U.S. provider of coffee.
With our sister agricultural agency AdFarm, opening a Hawaii location is a natural step for Flint Group.
Scouting the location
Our new office will be located about 2 miles from downtown Honolulu near Ala Moana Beach Park.
We’ve been sending employees to scout locations for the past year. And while we looked at other islands like Kauai and Maui, Honolulu’s economic vitality presents an ideal opportunity to serve the agriculture, aerospace and tourism industries most effectively.
This new endeavor is the pinnacle of our quest to AIM HIGHER.
