BELFOR Announces Purchase of Hawaii Restorative Services

(HONOLULU, HI) – BELFOR, the world’s largest property restoration company, announced today that it has purchased Hawaii Restorative Services, the largest full-service restoration contractor for the Hawaiian Islands. Based in Honolulu, Hawaii Restorative handles everything from broken residential water pipes to large losses for universities, hotels and shopping malls.

“Our two companies quickly found that we shared the same core values and worked very well together,” said Drew Chamberlain, general manager of Hawaii Restorative. Chuck Crismon, a representative of the company, added, “We are excited to add BELFOR’s expertise in areas like electronics restoration, document recovery and large-scale reconstruction to our already strong emergency mitigation services.”

Over the years, Hawaii Restorative has worked closely on several large restoration projects with BELFOR. This expanded base of operations allows BELFOR more rapid response to disasters in Samoa and other Pacific islands.

“It’s an honor to welcome Hawaii Restorative’s 25 dedicated employees to the BELFOR family,” said BELFOR CEO Sheldon Yellen. “These are a great group of people and we are excited to be a part of what they offer to the Hawaiian Islands.”

Hawaii Restorative Services was incorporated by Chuck Crimson and Drew Chamberlain in 2002. Previously, the partners co-owned a cleaning business that would become a precursor to the 24-hour specialized mitigation and restoration company. Since its inception, Hawaii Restorative Services has become the premier provider of emergency water and fire damage mitigation in the state of Hawaii with operations on Oahu and the big island of Hawaii.
