our impact


We practice Corporate Citizenship at Caliedo & Sons, which is the responsible stewardship of our time, resources, and talents for the benefit of our community. Our central core value is Caring as valiant sacrifice and vulnerable kindness. Over the years, we have:

  • Performed paint and non-skid deck restoration aboard the Hōkūleʻa, a Polynesian double-hulled voyaging canoe

  • Built and donated an Aluminum Sculpture of the James Campbell HS Sports Logo “C” to commemorate the graduating class of 2020

  • Participated in the joint council-state legislature cleanup of North Road, the District 9/Aloha Harvest food distribution event in Waipahu, and the District 9 canal and beach clean-up in Ewa Beach


Workforce development

Workforce Development is the lifeblood of our industry and the catalyst for economic diversification in Hawaii. At Caliedo & Sons, we provide deserving individuals with high-demand, high-compensation trade skills, allowing our employees to not only make ends meet but to thrive in Hawaii’s high cost of living.

Through our participation and leadership in Workforce Development initiatives with the Ship Repair Association of Hawaii, we hope to ensure more opportunities for Hawaii residents. To date we have graduated several cohorts from HCC, trained and certified in Maritime Welding. We are also currently in the development of a postsecondary Private Industry Shipyard Apprenticeship Program and a K-12 Maritime Innovation Career Pathway for the Department of Education.
