Who We Are: A Native Hawaiian Company

DAWSON is a Native Hawaiian-owned business enterprise headquartered in Honolulu, Hawaiʻi with offices across the U.S. and operations worldwide. The DAWSON companies— collectively known as DAWSON—are subsidiaries of the Hawaiian Native Corporation (HNC), a Native Hawaiian Organization (NHO) Federally-certified by the U.S. Small Business Administration since 2004.
Rooted in the Hawaiian values of aloha (embodying humility, respect, and compassion for all) and ʻohana (family), DAWSON carries forward a kuleana (responsibility) to benefit the Native Hawaiian community.

What We Do: Government Contracting

Since 2004, DAWSON has provided innovative and cost-effective solutions to the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) and other U.S. Government agencies. Core services include Professional & Technical Services, IT & Cyber Solutions, Construction, Environmental Services, Engineering & Logistics, Fuels Construction & Maintenance, Operations & Maintenance, and Federal Health Services.
Our industry roots extend back to 1994, when founder Christopher Dawson started Dawson Environmental Services to help improve Hawaiʻi’s environment. More than 25 years later, DAWSON operates around the globe, dedicated to making a difference in our communities.
